There are emergency department teams across Australia which have made substantial improvement to their service, have endured considerable challenge, implemented innovative solutions to problems and contribute to emergency care as leaders. If you think that your emergency department team is a team such as this then nominate them for the CENA Australasian Emergency Department of the Year Award.

There are many emergency nurses who work tirelessly providing high standards of care, advocating for their patients, educating their colleagues, contributing to the evidence base and promoting the specialty. This award is designed to recognise those nurses. You are all encouraged to nominate an emergency nurse that you consider is exceptional for the CENA Australasian Emergency Nurse of the Year Award.
