These awards have been established to recognize clinicians throughout our organization whose practice reflects the tenets of Relationship-Based Care: Leadership, Teamwork, Professionalism, Care Delivery, Resources and Outcomes. Relationship-Based Care is founded in the principle of organizing our care around the needs and priorities of patients and their families in a caring, healing environment. Any PAH Clinical Nurse, Advanced Practice Nurse, Clinical Nurse Education Specialist, Nursing Leader, Physician, Nursing Support Team Member, Multidisciplinary Team and Nursing Team member who exhibits the criteria outlined for each award are eligible for nomination.
