The Najoua Mlika-Cabanne Innovation Award
This GIN award acknowledges an individual’s contribution to innovation in the methodology, development, and /or implementation of clinical practice guidelines. Previous winners of the Najoua Mlika-Cabanne award have included individuals who have made significant contributions to patient involvement in guidelines, the evidence ecosystem and the development of threshold analysis for low quality evidence.
The award is named in memory of Dr Najoua Mlika-Cabanne ,Trustee of the Guidelines International Network between 2003 and 2010, and GIN Honorary Patron. Najoua died in 2011. Throughout her career Najoua made a significant contribution to the science of clinical guideline development and consistently fostered international collaboration and friendship. She was a true great in the guideline world and her influence is still felt today in France, her adopted home, in her home country of Tunisia and across the world.
The Najoua Mlika-Cabanne award is determined by a Committee who review the nominations received. We are particularly keen to see nominations for the award for those early in their guideline careers who are contributing in an innovative way to the world of guidelines.
