The annual Nursing Leadership Award of The Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL), has been conferred on Scott Robinson. Scott is the Senior Project Manager for medical travel in the Department of Health and Social Services in the Government of the Northwest Territories.

The award is sponsored by Baxter Corporation. “As a long-standing healthcare leader and innovation partner in Canada, Baxter is honoured to be a part of this program and proud of the relationships the company has developed with nurses during its almost 80 year history,” said Stephen Thompson, General Manager and Region Head, Baxter Corporation.

“Nurses play a vital role in our healthcare system, demonstrating their dedication and hard work to patient care each and every day. Baxter is pleased to have the opportunity to celebrate and recognize the commitment of nurses through this award.”

Scott Robertson was nominated by the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI). His nursing career has extensively focused on emergency and remote care settings with past positions including Chief Nursing Officer and senior nursing consultant for the Northwest Territories’ Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS). In these positions, Scott led improvements in health system design and delivery.

Scott is currently a visiting scholar at Stanford University, where he leads a project examining the features of high-value healthcare systems and how they can be reproduced. He continues to identify ways to use evidence and data more effectively in order to support nursing practice and make nursing policy more useful, which will then improve care on the front line. – CNW
