Would you like to honour your lung fibrosis healthcare hero by nominting them for a special prize?
ILFA is excited to announce the 2021 Denise Cassidy Memorial Prize for excellence in healthcare. This award recognises and celebrates the kindness, compassion and humanity of a hospital healthcare worker to a lung fibrosis patient or their family. Patients and carers are invited to nominate a person who showed you or your loved one a special act of kindness that helped you cope with your illness better.
If ever there was a year to celebrate our healthcare staff – this is it! Please fill out the nomination form that is included with this newsletter or available on the ILFA website and tell us why your healthcare hero deserves to be honoured. You can nominate a doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, social worker, counsellor, dietician, pharmacist, healthcare assistant, member of the chaplaincy team, clerical worker, catering or cleaning staff – in fact anyone who works in healthcare. The more information you can provide, the better as this helps us make the important decision regarding the overall winner. Everyone who is nominated will receive a certificate of excellence and the winner will receive a special commemorative Dublin crystal award.
