Oct 29, 2015 | News

Kevin Novakowski, a member of the Respiratory Therapy Department at PHC, was selected by the UBC Critical Care Fellows to receive this year’s ACCOLADE award (Award for Exceptional Contribution to Learning and Education). Each year one member of the multidisciplinary team is selected to receive this award based on a commitment to providing an outstanding educational experience for the Fellows. Kevin received his award at the end of May at the Fellows’ graduation dinner.

Kevin has been working as a Respiratory Therapist at PHC since 1992. In this time, he has worked in various roles including wards core therapist, Clinical Site Coordinator for the RT student program and most recently as one of two core ICU therapists. Kevin is recognized by the multi-disciplinary team for his exceptional clinical skills and his good natured personality. He brings a wealth of knowledge and abilities to his work in critical care and his humble and congenial manner have earned him considerable respect. His colleagues listen to what Kevin has to say and appreciate his feedback.  As such, Kevin is a valued mentor to new staff and a resource for other RTs and multi-disciplinary team members. Each year he is also recognized by the RT students as an exceptional student preceptor. Not only is this recognition well deserved but it also speaks to the impact that Kevin has as a teacher and mentor. Kevin’s work has clearly been of benefit to more than the RT department at PHC.  He is definitely one of the clinical leaders in our organization.
