In honor of National Patient Safety Awareness Week (March 8th through the 14th, 2009), MITSS is pleased to announce that we are now accepting nominations for the Second Annual MITSS HOPE Award.
The 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 of the Award will receive a $5,000 cash prize to continue their work.
Nominations are due by September 14, 2009. The Award will be presented at the MITSS 8th Annual Dinner and Fundraiser to be held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel on Thursday, November 12th, 2009, from 5:30 to 10 pm.
