Honours & Awards Committee
Over the recent months, the Canadian Association of wilderness medicine has been working on an awards and recognition program to recognize persons within the wilderness medical community with exceptional work and/or care given in the field of wilderness medicine. To facilitate this process, an Honours and awards committee was formed and terms of reference were developed and presented to the board this spring. The range of these awards is quite broad with the goal of being able to capture any discipline from first responder and initial care to clinical work or program management. The intent of these awards is to give them out at the annual conference and in addition, one award will also be given to a medical learner at the conference with the best presentation as voted on by members attending.
Awards, descriptions and categories are listed below as is the nomination process. An important date to remember is September 1st as this is the time that nominations must be into the committee for consideration.
