MITSS HOPE award nominations are open

I'm posting this at the request of Winnie Tobin at Medically Induced Trauma Support Services:

Nominations are now being accepted for the Second Annual MITSS HOPE Award. The MITSS HOPE Award was established in 2008 to recognize people -- patients, families, healthcare providers, hospitals (or teams or departments therein), academic institutions, community health centers, grass roots organizations, EAP programs, etc. -- who exemplify the mission of MITSS: Supporting Healing and Restoring Hope to patients, families, and clinicians impacted by adverse medical events. The winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize to continue their work.

Nominations are due by September 14, 2009, and the award will be presented at the MITSS 8th Annual Dinner to be held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Thursday, November 12th, 2009, from 5:30 to 9:30 pm.

For more information about the award, or to nominate someone, visit us on the web; call Winnie Tobin at (617) 232-0090 or e-mail wtobin [at] mitss [dot] org; or, mail us at MITSS, 830 Boylston Street, Suite 206, Boston, MA, 02467.

It's great to see the HOPE Award and MITSS mentioned on this popular site. The HOPE Award deserves the attention considering its purpose, the work and the people it recognizes. I like that the award highlights groundbreaking work in patient safety and fresh thinking about that topic. Good work that helps us to maintain the public trust should be celebrated and the HOPE Award gives us a chance to do that.
