Quinn Fowlie Young Patient Star Award: Previous Recipients
In B.C. 9% of youth 10 to 14 years and 11% of youth aged 15 to 24 have some disability due to a physical or mental health condition. In some cases, these youth are accompanied by nurses throughout their daily lives. For other youth, frequent hospitalization, managing chronic conditions or recovering from serious illness or injury requires frequent contact with a team of nurses and specialists who become an important part of a young person's life.
