Huge congratulations to the Independent (Non-Medical) Prescribing team on their success at the 2022 Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE) Award celebration event at the Liverpool Football Stadium on 29 September 2022. UWE Bristol is the largest provider of prescribing education in the UK, training more than 500 clinicians every year who provide patient care across the South West of England and beyond. The team designs and delivers exceptional prescribing training to nurses, pharmacists, midwives, paramedics, dietitians, physiotherapists, podiatrists and radiographers.
The CATE Awards, organised and run by Advance HE, recognise and celebrate collaborative work that has had a demonstrable impact on teaching and learning. Introduced in 2016, the scheme highlights the key role that teamwork plays in higher education. There were 16 winning CATE teams, which were all recognised as having enabled a change in practice for colleagues and/or students at an institutional, or discipline level.
The UWE Bristol Prescribing team, led by Debbie Moreno-Chamorro, comprises 15 academics, practice clinicians and NHS managers. This is a highly regulated programme and the team are very well supported by dedicated professional services staff.
Congratulations as well to our colleague, Dr Abdullahi Arabo, Senior Lecturer in Computer Networks and Mobile Technology, who won the 2022 National Teaching Fellowship Award.
