Loving Care for Chronic Disease Award Ceremony cum Health Talk 2018
The Loving Care for Chronic Disease Award Ceremony cum Health Talk 2018 was successfully held on 22 September (Saturday) on the 3rd floor of TWGHs Tsui Tsin Tong Out-patient Building. Since 2010, it has become an annual tradition of KWH General Out-patient Clinic to recognise, encourage and reinforce the empowerment efforts of our patients in self-management of their chronic disease, such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension. There were three categories of the annual awards, namely:
Date : 22 Sep, 2018
1) Persistent Achiever Award: this award is given to patients who consistently managed to have good control of diabetes and other risk factors for the past three years.
2) Improver Award: this award is given to patients who demonstrated remarkable improvement in control of his/her diabetes and other risk factors.
3) Loving Carer Award: this award is given to family members who showed utmost care and compassion in helping the patient with his/her chronic disease self-management.
Throughout the years, TWGHs and KWH Senior Management have been very supportive of this meaningful event. This year, we were honoured to have our Hospital Chief Executive - Dr Eric Cheung, General Manager (Nursing) - Ms Jess Lo, Senior Hospital Manager (General Administration & Corporate Affairs) - Ms Winnie Kan and KWH Allied Health Coordinator - Mr Charlie Li as our distinguished guests among many others in gracing this event with their presence. Dr Chiang Lap Kin and Physiotherapist Mr Cheetham Siu also gave a very interesting talk on Chronic Pain Management. Once again, our special thanks to the organising team and volunteers for making this event a success.
