Award for Excellence in Human Research Protection
Best Practice Award

Awards will be given for demonstrated excellence in promoting the well being of people who participate in research. Health Improvement Institute has established an Award for Best Practice — given to a research institution, an unit, or an individual that has the best way, one of the best ways, or a proven way to achieve, or to contribute toward achieving, the protection that is the specified purpose of the practice.

The Institute holds an annual Award competition. Volunteer judges evaluate answers to Award questions, submitted in the application for an Award, against established criteria. Health Improvement Institute recognizes application judged to be meritorious with a Certificate of Merit. Applications judged to be excellent receive an Award of Excellence; recipients receive a certificate. The most worthy application, if any, wins the Annual Best Practice Award; the winner receives a plaque and certificate proclaiming the Award. The Institute's selection of winners and decision about the level of recognition awarded are final.
