Member News: CRPA Members Win Award of Excellence / Nouvelles des membres : Des membres de l’ACRP remportent un prix d’excellence
CRPA members Jeff Dovyak, lngvar Fife, and Roger Hugron, as members of the Radiological/Nuclear Medical Emergency Preparedness and Response Team, were among the recipients of a 2017 Assistant Deputy Ministers’ (ADM) Awards for Excellence in Service Delivery.
The nominator, Dr. Dominique Nsengiyumva, acknowledged the team’s partnership with many federal and provincial partners to devise a project that would provide training to as many medical professionals as possible in order to effectively and efficiently respond to a radiological/nuclear emergency in Canada. Since their eLearning module went live in October 2016 there has been a clear indication that this project was needed and will result in an enhanced national capacity to respond to a nuclear emergency.
The award was presented at a ceremony on June 2, 2017, at the Library and Archives Canada Auditorium.
“I am not often at a loss for words but this is one of those times,” says Jeff Dovyak. “I enjoyed what we were working on and think that the eLearning module has a lot to offer, especially in our challenging economic times.”
