  The awards were announced on Tuesday 10 September celebrating patient information materials which are accessible, evidence-based and well designed. The information also supports patients as active participants in decisions about their care. The Concussion booklet was highly commended and shortlisted in the Young Adults category. Aimed at families, educators and sports coaches the booklet has been created to fill a worrying gap in awareness and to challenge the common assumption that all children recover quickly and completely. The judges said: “This is a very well-produced leaflet with a good methodology. The production standards are high, and it is clearly targeted. It is well-designed with infographics and good use of headings.” The Brain Injury Community Service (BICS) animation and leaflet was also highly commended and it was shortlisted for the Community Care award. The materials were primarily developed to help children and young people affected by brain injury, and their families, understand the support available to them via The Children’s Trust dedicated community service. Judges commented: “This is an engaging, resource that is part of the charity’s relaunch of its community service. It is well-produced and relevant, with a typical case study included. The video animation works well, is the right length to give enough information and is entertaining and dynamic. It also emphasises the effect of brain injury on quality of children’s lives – eg school, friends, family.” The BMA said: “The provision of information to patients is an important and significant part of providing good health care.” You can watch the BICS animation:
