Knowledge Awards: Quality Improvement in Practice
The Knowledge Awards showcase QI implementation in practice, and the individuals and teams that have driven improvement within the profession.
The award is open to anyone who works within a veterinary setting, particularly those from the administration team, veterinary nurses, practice managers and surgeons at all levels. Winners of the award have championed their outstanding examples of QI in practice, and have aimed to establish a more efficient and enjoyable practice environment for the veterinary community.
“Winning an RCVS Knowledge Champion Award and being given the chance to celebrate our success has been a huge part of helping us to bond as a team"

All applicants are encouraged to work with Knowledge to share their experiences in applying QI, be it through our blog, publishing in our journal Veterinary Evidence, or maybe even presenting at a conference!
Applications and Nominations can be submitted by individuals or practice teams. If your application/nomination is successful, the applicant/nominee will become a Knowledge Champion and will receive a £250 prize.
The successful applicant/nominee will also be invited to attend an awards ceremony and will be reimbursed up to £200 towards reasonable travel costs to attend the event at which this ceremony is held. If a winning application was made for a practice – rather than an individual – then a representative from the practice will be invited to attend the awards ceremony.
