HJF nursing specialist wins prestigious Celina Field Cargiver Award
Date:11/6/2008

Rockville, Md. (Nov. 06, 2008)Christine M. Rupprecht, MSN, RN, nursing specialist for the Army's Regional Anesthesia & Pain Management Initiative at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, has won the prestigious Celina Field Caregiver Award by the National Pain Foundation (NPF). Ms. Rupprecht is an employee of The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc.

The Celina Field Award recognizes individuals for excellence in caregiving and for their devotion to helping those living with pain. The award, presented twice a year by NPF, honors the late Celina Field, a dance performer and instructor who sustained a serious back injury, the effects of which lead to her eventual death in 2003 at the age of 52. Ms. Field set aside an endowment in her will to help the NPF carry out its mission of empowering those living in pain, as well as the friends and family members who provide care and support.

"The National Pain Foundation is proud to pay tribute to Christine Rupprecht for her groundbreaking achievements in the field of pain management as well as her dedication to, and passion for, providing exemplary care to patients coping with life-altering injuries and the family members who care for them," said Mark Rasmussen, chief executive officer of NPF.

Rupprecht and her colleagues provide pain management for soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with devastating injuries. She helped rewrite the hospital's policies on pain management through the creation of a Pain Process Improvement Team. Most of Rupprecht's patients have experienced severe limb injuries or amputations.

Rupprecht also created and leads the Pain Management Task Force, which trains hospital staff on the ever-changing issue of pain management. Rupprecht also developed a pain resource nurse program to train "pain champions" who serve as resources to new nurses and other staff.
