BILBAO HOSTS THE 5th ESTEVE ’UNITED BY PATIENT CARE’ AWARDS

The prize-giving ceremony will take place on Thursday, 31st of January in the Paraninfo Room of Deusto University in the Basque capital.

This week, the names will be announced of the winning projects of the 5th ESTEVE 'United by Patient Care' Awards (www.premiosesteve.com) at a ceremony that will take place on the 31st of January at 7 pm in the Paraninfo Room of Deusto University. Taking part in the prize-giving ceremony will be the Mayor of the city, Iñaki Azkuna; the Basque Minister for Health, Jon Darpon and the Planning Professional Managing Director of the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, José Javier Castrodeza, among other authorities. Since 2004, these awards have recognised the most human side of the profession, highlighting the most innovative initiatives to improve patient care.

More than 350 health professionals will attend the prize-giving at a ceremony organised by ESTEVE in collaboration with the Collegial Medical Organisation (OMC), the General Council of Official Colleges of Pharmacists (CGCOF) and the Collegial Organisation of Nursing (CGE). This 5th year has an important new addition: for the first time, as well as the Medical Area and the Pharmaceutical Area, there is also the Nursing Area and Chronic Patient Area, to adapt to today's healthcare situation.

The great success of the call for applications has resulted in a total of 406 projects received from all over Spain which, in addition to entering their specific professional area have also been able to opt for the special prize from the Chronic Patient Area, an option chosen by 245 projects, so that the 406 projects received have become 651 entries.

Seven awards will be given at the prize-giving ceremony this coming Thursday: two each for the Medical, Pharmaceutical and Nursing Areas (in the categories of Best Personal Initiative and Best Institutional Initiative) and a single, extraordinary award in the Chronic Patient Area. Each prize-winner will receive a bronze sculpture by Marcel Martí and a financial award of 12,000 euros.

The jury for the Awards is made up of people with renowned prestige in the sector, representatives of patient associations and media professionals who have selected, as winners of this 5th edition, those initiatives that stand out for their innovation, originality, transferability and positive impact on patients.
