2012 MITSS HOPE AWARD
Call for nominations

About the 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. 

MITSS achieves its mission through:

  • Creating awareness and educating about the emotional impact of adverse medical events on patients, families, and clinicians;
  • Providing direct support services to anyone affected by adverse events; and,
  • Advocating for healthcare organizations to develop formal support systems and provide resources for their patients and staff in cases of adverse events.

An independent, multi-disciplinary Selection Committee will review the nominations to ensure that each submission clearly demonstrates a direct link and alignment with the MITSS mission.

The winner receives a $5,000 monetary prize to assist in continuing their work.
