- Do you have a doctor who has treated you with kindness, compassion and respect? Who has helped you try various treatments?
- Do you have a nurse who goes above and beyond in helping you, especially during IC flares?
- Do you have a physical therapist who has provided comfort and care for pelvic floor dysfunction?
Every year we honor those physicians, nurses and physical therapists who treat IC patients with compassion, respect and knowledge. The nurse award is new in 2017! One of our members pointed out that she had a wonderful nurse that she wanted to nominate for an annual award and we thought this was a very good idea so we’ve now opened up nominations for those nurses who are your lifeline with IC, who take your phone calls and provide support!
How are the winners determined?
Winners are determined by the number of patient nominations they receive. In case of a tie, the panel then views the nominations that were provided. Only one nomination is allowed per email address. Duplicates will be removed.
What do the winners receive?
A lovely plaque for their office and a letter from us telling them just how much we appreciate their care of IC patients. We happily announce their awards to the global IC community. It’s a pretty big deal!
Who is eligible?
Any doctor, nurse or physical therapist who you believe has provided exceptional are for your IC. Doctors of all specialties are welcome (urologists, obgyn, urogynecologists, etc.).
How can I nominate someone?
Just fill out THIS FORM on our website! Easy peasie. Make sure that you include a statement on the nomination about why you like this practitioner and how they’ve helped you. In case of a tie, we look to the nominations to select our winner so tell us as much as you would like!
