Each year, the PCDA recognizes members who have demonstrated exceptional performance, contributed to the advancement of practice, and been effective and inspiring leaders in their primary care team setting through the following awards based on our values:
Medical Nutrition Therapy Award
Member RD who has shown exceptional determination, dedication and compassion to provide patient-centred nutrition support to advance the understanding of healthy dietary patterns across populations and provide innovative, evidence-based care.
Team-based and/or Interprofessional Care Award
Member RD who goes above-and-beyond (independently or in partnership with RD colleagues) to work with and/or build collaborative relationships with interprofessional healthcare colleagues to provide enhanced, comprehensive care while working with patients, families, and caregivers to deliver the highest quality of patient-centred care across all settings.
Health Equity Award
Member RD who has demonstrated efforts to reduce health inequalities and disparities by helping patients to overcome the barriers to achieving better health in defined populations (e.g., racial and ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, and rural populations). This member will have consistently and purposefully supported patients who have systematically experienced greater obstacles to health based on their demographic, socio-economic, geographical or other characteristics historically linked to discrimination or exclusion.
