Since 2002, the RhPAP Awards program has provided rural Alberta’s health-care heroes and rural communities with a healthy dose of recognition.
The RhPAP Rhapsody Awards continue a long tradition of celebrating rural Alberta’s health-care heroes and rural communities. A play on our name, the Rhapsody Awards are designed to celebrate the individuals, teams, and communities that make significant civic and health-care contributions within rural Alberta.
A community celebration
RhPAP supports communities to celebrate their Rhapsody Award recipients and their achievements in their home communities.
If your nominee is successful, RhPAP will work with the nominator and / or designated community members to honour the successful recipient at a community recognition event tailored to the community and recipient.
This recognition event will include a Rhapsody Award presentation, with a video profile of the recipient and their contributions to the health and well-being of their community.
RhPAP wants to help you celebrate
- Your rural community’s efforts to attract and retain health professionals in rural Alberta (Rhapsody Community Award)
- A physician’s contributions to your rural Alberta community (Rhapsody Physician Award)
- A health professional’s or health-care team’s involvement in innovative projects and/or patient experience improvement or team-building initiatives, and their effect on your rural Alberta community (Rhapsody Health-care Heroes Award)
The Rhapsody Physician and Health-care Heroes Awards come with funding to support nominators or a planning group of their choosing to organize an event to celebrate the health professionals who help keep your community healthy! For the Rhapsody Community Award, RhPAP will make a special award presentation at the time and place of the recipient and nominator’s choosing, and recipients will have pride of place at the next RhPAP Health-care Provider Attraction & Retention Conference.
Nomination deadline is February 28.
