  • celebrate quality patient literature and its value for patients and clinicians, highlighting the importance of trusted and evidence-based patient/public information
  • signpost attendees to award-winning patient information, highlighting why it’s valuable to their role as clinicians
  • give healthcare charities a platform to share best practice, learn from each other, and deliver better patient outcomes.
