2005/2006 Oxoid Infection Control Team Awards Now Open
£6,500 in prizes for the winning teams in the 2005/2006 Oxoid Infection Control Team of the Year Awards
The Oxoid Infection Control Team of the Year Awards are designed to recognise and reward those who are making a real difference to improved standards of infection control within hospitals worldwide. The 2005/2006 Awards are now open for entry – so make sure your team enters this year. With a £5000 first prize, and 2nd and 3rd prizes of £1,000 and £500, the winning teams will be able to spend their prize money on team building events, training, or travel expenses to conferences and seminars to extend their infection control knowledge and ultimately provide better care for hospital patients.
The closing date for entries to the 2005/2006 Awards is 31 January 2006, but don’t leave it until the last minute – it is easy to enter as there are no forms to complete. To enter just provide a summary (in less than 2,000 words) describing the infection control challenges faced in your hospital and how team members respond to these challenges; detail the results of your work (results are particularly important to the judges!) and how this has made a difference to your patients and hospital. Entry guidelines and details of previous winners can be downloaded in PDF format from the Infection Control Awards page or obtained by contacting Val Kane, Awards Co-ordinator on tel: +44 (0) 1256 841144, fax: +44 (0) 1256 329728, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
