The HealthImpact DAISY Nurse Leader Award For Advancing Compassion Through Policy


From the very beginning of the profession, nurses have been at the forefront of supporting patients and families through compassionate care. As the profession matured, nurses worked tirelessly to change policies to protect vulnerable populations and improve the health of communities. To commemorate 2020—The International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, HealthImpact has partnered with the DAISY Foundation to create the HealthImpact DAISY Nurse Leader Award in Policy to honor nurses whose work in policy advances compassionate care that improves the health of populations. This award will honor nurses from across the United States who have successfully driven policy development that advances compassionate care for individuals and communities. Examples include, but are not limited to, broadening access to care; reducing barriers or challenges to safe, high-quality care; increasing diversity, inclusion, equity; and creating communities for healing.
