BRAVE Awards Now Accepting Nominations

DUBLIN, Ireland, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The BRAVE Awards, an international awards initiative that recognizes the courage and dedication of non-professional caregivers, is accepting nominations for its 2013 program. Now in its third year, the BRAVE Awards honors those unsung everyday heroes - unpaid, non-professional caregivers - who give of themselves every day in a meaningful, dedicated and selfless manner.  

Developed and implemented by Shire plc, the global biopharmaceutical company, the BRAVE Awards is taking nominations now through June 30, 2013. Up to 20 nominees from around the world will be selected as BRAVE Awards recipients and each will be awarded $10,000 USD or the equivalent in local currency.

The nomination process is straightforward: consider a non-professional caregiver you believe deserves recognition; review the official website at http://www.ShireBRAVEAwards.com to learn more; and complete the online nomination form. recipients will be announced in November 2013. A Selection Committee consisting of Shire employees and non-Shire representatives who are experts and advocates in the caregiving field choose the recipients.

"Those nominated for the BRAVE Awards represent the invisible army of millions of family caregivers," said Flemming Ornskov, MD, Chief Executive Designate, Shire. "Their consistent care of others is an enormously generous and selfless commitment.  We are privileged to raise awareness about the significant impact non-professional carers play in our society and to recognize individuals who work tirelessly to give their loved ones as normal and healthy a life as possible."

A caregiver is defined by the Shire BRAVE Awards as an individual who is providing regular, consistent care for another person in a volunteer capacity. The caregiver can be a relative, neighbor, or friend who gives their time, support, and compassion regularly, helping another person who is not able to care for himself or herself. The caregiver cannot be a professional healthcare provider and cannot be compensated in any formal way through their activities as a caregiver.  Doctors, nurses, hospital staff and other healthcare workers are not eligible for consideration; however, they can nominate non-professional caregivers. Nominees must be age 18 or older at the time of nomination. In 2013, the Shire BRAVE Awards are open to eligible nominees in 19 countries - Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

There are no restrictions on the type of care being provided, no correlation with any health condition or therapeutic area, and the care recipient need not be prescribed a Shire medicine or treatment. The program has been developed to ensure confidentiality and privacy, and adheres to Shire's Privacy Policy. The BRAVE Awards are presented in the spirit of Shire's BRAVE culture.
