Supported by the Primary Care Diabetes Society (PCDS) this award will be presented to an individual who is based in the UK or Ireland, delivers excellence in education, in a specialist or community setting: whether through developing innovative teaching tools or courses; providing mentorship for other educators; or delivering and promoting externally developed training. He or she will have a clear patient focus and be seen as a champion for education in his
or her area.
Nominations are welcome for anyone working in a professional field in a specialist or community setting, where diabetes education is a major focus of the role.
The nominee's information will be posted online for the public vote within a specific time frame. The top five nominations from the public vote will then be reviewed by an independent judging panel made up of senior judges and chairs who will make the final decision on who receives the award.
The judges will be looking for evidence of innovative and successful education to support increased awareness and knowledge of diabetes for people with diabetes and/or family and carers leading to empowerment and successful self-management, improved diabetes control and improved quality of life.
