2018 recipients

Ms Ang Ching Ching

Advanced Practice Nurse & Senior Nurse Clinician

Tan Tock Seng Hospital

Ching Ching started out as an infectious diseases nurse before moving on to end of life care. Being Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s first Advanced Practice Nurse trained in palliative care, she was greatly involved in several impactful palliative care projects; both local as well as overseas.

Ms Goh Meh Meh

Deputy Director of Nursing

Singapore General Hospital

Meh Meh led a four-year project to transform the Theatre Sterile Supplies Unit at Singapore General Hospital into a state-of-the art facility with advanced sterile processing capabilities through IT automation. She also successfully optimised the utilisation of the Operating Theatre to reduce surgery wait time for patients. Despite her busy schedule and leadership position, she continues to assist in critical cases like burns, where timely intervention is crucial to patients’ survival.

Ms Li Wei

Advanced Practice Nurse & Senior Nurse Clinician

National Neuroscience Institute (NNI)

Li Wei steered quality and innovation projects aimed at optimising patient care for Parkinson patients. With her expertise in Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders, she established the Advanced Practice Nurse -led clinic, which monitors patients’ progress and ensure timely reviews. Her instrumental role in the care transition for patients who have undergone Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) makes her a certified DBS programmer; a role typically performed by a neurologist.

Ms Ng Gaik Nai

Chief Nurse

KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital

Establishing a dedicated Nursing Informatics unit to integrate IT into clinical practice and introducing radio-frequency identification tagging in the obstetric wards are some examples of how Gaik Nai has employed technology to improve patient care processes at KK Women's and Children's Hospital. Her team also collaborated with the Prime Minister's Office, National Population and Talent Division, to develop an infant care training programme for caregivers.

Ms Shirley Heng

Deputy Chief Nurse

Khoo Teck Puat Hospital

Shirley played a key role in Alexandra Hospital’s migration to an electronic work environment. A proponent of modernising clinical practice and harnessing technology, she contributes significantly to the implementation of electronic nursing documentation and physician order entries.

Ms Soh Poh Choo Mona

Director of Nursing

Gleneagles Hospital

After 19 years in the public sector, Mona moved to Parkway Pantai in 2012, where she established the group’s nursing leader’s programme to develop strong middle managers. She was also an active member of a workgroup that developed the nursing philosophy that guides and directs clinical and service excellence standards, as well as professionalism among nurses across the group’s four hospitals in Singapore.
