The Brain Injury Hub’s Concussion pages were also ‘Commended’ by the judging panel. Our Journey – a free resource, aimed at helping families and carers of children with brain injury – was awarded 'Runner Up' in the Decision Making and User Engagement categories. One of the judges commented: “I was very impressed with the thought and preparation gone into Our Journey. “It is clear that patients have been able to steer the project towards meeting their needs. It is beautifully designed and laid out and allows personal information from the child and from professionals, together with prompts for discussions. It is personal and empowering and hence very likely to be used.” Order your free Our Journey here.
Another judge commended our Concussion content, saying: “This is a very good resource. As a parent, I remember worrying weather knocks to my children’s heads were bad enough to have caused concussion and whether or not I should contact a doctor. This resource will help tackle that uncertainty.” Both resources have been created by The Children’s Trust Information Service team which runs the Brain Injury Hub. All of the resources are charitably funded and are provided for free. It is the third consecutive year in which the charity has been recognised at the awards.  Maria Coyle, Information Editor at The Children’s Trust said: “We are thrilled and honoured to have been recognised once again at these brilliant awards, by the BMA. It is a reassurance that we are creating accurate and empowering information for families. It is also an incentive to continue developing our free literature on childhood brain injury. “These awards are a great opportunity for organisations to showcase their work in patient information.”
