Description of NNVAWI Awards

The Excellence in Practice and Policy Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the development of effective health care for women and/or children who have experienced violence. These contributions could include leadership in developing and/or implementing new interventions or models of care, playing a key role in building support for such changes in an organization or sector, or advocating for the development of health care or other policies which improve the responsiveness and quality of care for women and children experiencing violence.

The Excellence in Research Award recognizes outstanding contributions to research and/or evidence-based practice in the area of violence against women and children. Nominations may be made for single projects (conducted by an investigator or team), or for a longer-term program of reserach. In each case, the novelty, quality, potential or actual impact of the work will be considered.    

The Excellence in Education Award recognizes excellence and educational leadership related to curriculum development and health professional education in the area of violence and/or initiatives directed enhancing awareness of issues related to VAW with the public or community groups.
