Being patient can be scary. It can mean lack of control, lack of independence and loss of dignity. Depend on others supporting and caring for you in hospitals that sometimes feel very clinical, unfamiliar and not at all welcoming.
Teva, a global producer of generic drugs, argues that caring for a patient is about more than just medicine, but a better quality of life.
For this, the annual Best Days awards were created, which recognize the initiatives and ways of working that improve the experience of being patient focusing on empathy, humanity, dignity and compassion. These awards were launched in
Spain in 2015, and since 2019 begins to replicate in different countries where Teva has a presence, Chile being one of the countries selected to hold these awards.
Until July 15 at 23:59 hours, those institutions, public or private, not-for-profit, that develop projects, activities and solidarity initiatives that contribute to overcome the difficult experience of the disease in the best possible way, they will be able to participate in the Annual Awards Best Days, a project created by Laboratorio Chile-Teva in order to improve the quality of life of patients.
These awards were launched in Spain in 2015, and from 2019 they began to replicate in different countries where Teva has a presence, Chile being one of the countries selected to hold these awards.
All interested parties can review the published bases and upload their application on the Best Days Awards site.
