The ASA Employer Award aims to improve sonography clinical practice through encouraging the review of clinical cases and processes in order to find better ways of doing things and expand learning across the profession by sharing employers improved clinical practice and processes.
Employers put forward their best presentation: either a case study or evidence-based research relating to a process or practice review and improvement. The prize is a full conference registration to the ASA annual conference. Award recipients are required to either submit their work as an abstract for the ASA’s Conference or submit as a manuscript for publication in the ASA Sonography journal.
The ASA provides mentoring support to the award recipient in the form of assistance with proffering a presentation at an ASA conference or preparing their work for publication.
