Jane Chamberlin Award
The Jane Chamberlin Award was created to recognize outstanding achievement in Mental Health relating to General Hospitals / Schedule I’s in Ontario. Each year members of the AGHPS are invited to nominate a candidate for the award.
Jane Chamberlin was an Executive Director for the Association of General Hospital Psychiatric Services. Upon her death it was decided to honour her by bestowing an award in her name to someone who has given of themselves toward the betterment of mental health services within General Hospitals / Schedule I facilities. It is awarded in conjunction with the Jane Chamberlin Lecture at the Ontario Psychiatric Association Annual Conference.
The Jane Chamberlin Award recognizes a person that embodies the spirit of this award - outstanding achievement in mental health relating to General Hospital and/or Schedule I Hospitals. This could be manifested in a great variety of ways and we purposely do not restrict the criteria. Examples -
- Leadership in developing ways to improve outcomes and reduce stigma
- Efforts to impact the lives and outcomes for those presenting to hospital
- Awareness, education, information that has made a difference
- Outstanding clinical practice
- Provincial leadership in an area of practice
Every nomination received is considered on the basis of whether or not the individual nominated has made a significant contribution above and beyond professional duties. This could be a single outstanding contribution or continuous contributions over a career.
