Congratulations to Margaret McGrath and Eimear Quinlan, both Occupational Therapists based in Sandymount, for their recent commendation at the Health Management Institute (HMI) Leaders Awards for their project ‘Within Our Reach: Supporting the Functional Hand Use of Children with Cerebral Palsy’.
The awards recognise leaders who are bringing about changes in healthcare; delivering improvements in patient outcomes; enhancing service delivery; and improving resource allocation. The HMI Leaders Award showcases the commitment, risk and perseverance which teams and individuals display in striving to achieve change.
The project demonstrated how the Occupational Therapy Department in Sandymount established a structure and support system for the OT's to provide an equitable, accountable and quality service to develop and maintain the functional hand use of those identified with impairments in their upper limbs.
Margaret McGrath said "We are delighted to get this recognition and aspire to continue developing our project further for the overall benefit of the children and families."
