This year’s Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) Awards are open for nominations, to recognise the accomplishments of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australian individuals, groups and organisations within the Nursing and Midwifery Sector.
Nominations for the awards close on 1 March, with four categories in the awards, which aim to provide a source of pride and inspiration for CATSINaM’s members, partners and the workforce at large.
Two awards in particular highlight outstanding individual achievement:
The Sally Goold Award celebrates a First Nations nurse or midwife “who has made substantial contributions to the nursing and midwifery profession and the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians through their work”.
The Sister Alison Bush Award will be awarded in recognition of an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nurse or midwife who has greatly added to the nursing and midwifery profession and the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women, their babies and families through their work.
The remaining awards acknowledge strong organisational partnerships, which can be either an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander or mainstream group – that forms culturally respectful, committed and successful partnerships with a CATSINaM member.
While the Student of the Year Award, honours an Aboriginal and/ or Torres Strait Islander nurse or midwife who has made significant contributions to… their educational institution, their community, the nursing/midwifery sector, [and] CATSINaM’s vision and purpose.
Nomination forms and more detailed information for each award can be found at the CATSINaM website, while completed forms can be emailed to email@example.com.
