As well as celebrating 2021 Awards shortlist and the overall winner, the event will be an opportunity to shine a light on the importance of communication in patient care - between patients and medics, the BMA and external stakeholders, and organisations with one another.
What to expect from this webinar
The event will:
- 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.
- The ceremony solidifies the important work of BMA PLG and its role in the awards, further highlighting the PLG’s mission to ensure that the patient voice is represented and valued.
- Medical Aid Films keynote sessions will feature Medical Aid Films’ project, supported by BMA Giving, to deliver COVID-19 health information to BAME, migrant and non-English speaking communities across the UK. This hybrid feature will celebrate a project that is relevant and timely for specific groups of patients and doctors.
