May 13, 2013
Memorial’s Centre for Collaborative Health Care Professional Education (CCHPE) received honourable mention in the Academy for Healthcare Improvement’s 2012 competition for the Duncan Neuhauser Awards. 
This international award recognizes new curricular material that has the potential for significant impact in the teaching of improvement, is innovative in its educational approach, and has the ability to be adopted by other schools, institutions or professions.
There were a record number of submissions for the 2012 competition. CCHPE’s submission, Interprofessional education in practicing teams:  Improving collaboration and patient safety, was ranked fourth by the review team and received a certificate of honourable mention. 
Memorial is a two-time first-place winner in the annual Duncan Neuhauser Award for Curricular Innovation competition. In 2009 and 2010 the CCHPE submissions claimed the top prize. The 2009 winning submission was titled Teaching Collaboration Competencies in Clinical Training: Where the Rubber Hits the Road. In 2010, the Interprofessional Education Module for Patient Safety took the top prize. 

Dr. Julia Trahey accepted the AHI award.
