This prestigious award is presented to exemplary allied health clinicians who contribute to clinical education and continue to support the professional education and development of allied health students and allied health clinicians at Princess Alexandra Hospital.
Allied health clinicians who contribute to clinical education:
It is an expectation that all allied health clinicians contribute to the education of students.
Excellence in allied health clinical education continues to become increasingly important due to numerous factors. These include:
The Award for Excellence in Nursing Education was first offered in 2009 in line with the Medical and Allied Health Award for Excellence in Education. This award was developed to recognise a nurse who has made a significant contribution to nursing education through their educational commitment to patients, colleagues and/or students. In addition, it recognises a nurse who is an outstanding role model and has had a positive influence on their team. This is a prestigious award to recognise a nurse who demonstrates excellence in nursing education.
This prestigious and long-standing award has been presented to exemplary teachers who have supported junior medical staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) over the last 28 years. At PAH, resident education is recognised as a priority and this award not only highlights its importance but also promotes enthusiasm and excellence in clinical teaching in general. An ongoing commitment to resident teaching is paramount in producing high calibre doctors.
Winners were announced during the Awards Ceremony on Friday 27 August 2021 and each will receive a $1,000 professional development bursary.
