The winner of the HMI Leaders Award 2015 is Dr Alison Dougall of the Dublin Dental University Hospital. The title of Alison’s winning project is ‘Promoting improved access to dental care for people living with haemophilia in Ireland and encouraging a culture of oral health promotion within the teams that treat them’.
Alison received her award on July 7, 2015, following presentations by the seven finalists to the National Judging Panel. Each finalist demonstrated commitment and passion for their project, which provided a wonderful learning opportunity for those in attendance.
It was a wonderful afternoon of celebration of some of the projects and research that are taking place in our health system and a positive example of some of the initiatives being implemented, which are bringing real and transformative change.
