The 2017 Rowan Hillson Inpatient safety award

28 November 2017

The Joint British Diabetes Society for Inpatient Care (JBDS-IP) are inviting colleagues to submit entries to this competition: Improving Inpatient Diabetes Safety: Best Digital Initiative.

This JBDS – IP project is being led by Umesh Dashora, Debbie Stanisstreet, and Erwin Castro.  The submissions will be judged against predetermined criteria, by an independent panel chaired by Rowan Hillson.

The winner will be awarded the prestigious annual Rowan Hillson Inpatient Safety Award at the ABCD Spring meeting. The outcome of this initiative will be published on the ABCD, Diabetes UK and DISN UK Group websites to share excellent practice.

This competition follows the very successful 2014, 2015 and 2016 competitions to find the best UK insulin chart, the best hypoglycaemia avoidance initiative and the best pharmacy initiative.

Competitive applications are likely to be those that show hard evidence of benefit, that are translatable to other Trusts, are costed, are relatively simple and sustainable, and which have been commissioned or supported by an Acute Trust.
