    Patient Information Resource of the Year 2016 - Caring and MND: quick guideCaring and MND
    Motor Neurone Disease Association, 2014

    This is a written as a direct conversation with family or unpaid carers who support a person with motor neurone disease.

    Professor Pali Hungin presented the BMA Patient Information Resource of the Year to the Motor Neurone Disease Association’s Care Information Manager Mrs Kaye Stevens and their Head of Education and Information Mrs Rachel Boothman.

    It was reviewed by Ms Catherine Macadam the immediate past BMA PLG Chair who commented:

    'I think this resource is brilliant and I strongly recommend this resource be shortlisted. I think it would be very empowering for carers and it is good to see time and trouble taken to appreciate all aspects of a carers’ experience including life after caring. I think it is beautifully presented and contains a massive amount of useful information in a very clear way (the How to Use this Guide section together with the way the information is presented with use of colour, summaries and quotes and the clear contents and index mean that despite being a lengthy document it feels very easy to navigate and find what you need).  It speaks directly to carers’ experience. I think it could be used by anyone who is caring for someone with a life-limiting illness. The evaluation form is particularly impressive as it seeks information about the impact of the resource, not just the content or style.'

    Special Award - Children - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for Children - The Tiger Cloud KitThe Tiger Cloud Kit
    Fruit Fly Collective, 2015

    The target audience for this resource is children aged between 6 to 11-years-old who have a parent diagnosed with cancer.  It aims to help children cope with their parent’s cancer diagnosis by increasing their understanding of what cancer is, how it can be treated, and how family life will change.  

    The award was chosen by BMA immediate past president Sir Al Aynsley-Green who commented:

    ‘The word 'cancer' is one of the taboo words of today. Yet, countless thousands of children every year live in families confronting the fear, uncertainty and stress that follow the diagnosis of cancer in a parent. They need to be supported during this difficult time in their lives. This outstanding 'Tiger Cloud Kit' is designed to help children cope with their parent's cancer diagnosis by increasing their understanding of what cancer is, how it can be treated, and how family life will change. It is also an important resource for professional staff to encourage them to always consider how the diagnosis will affect the children in the family. I commend this book unreservedly.’

    It was reviewed by the Patient Awards director, Mr Richard Jones, who commented:

    ‘I really like this resource. The list of specialist contributors and the consultation methodology are clearly visible in the high quality pack. Not all of the components will appeal to all children but they can be used with counsellors. The booklets alone would stand as exceptional for the quality of production and clarity. The resource is interactive and engages with the target audience. The calendar allows children to place everyday activities on it. The pack conveys a great deal of information in an imaginative and engaging way. The pack of cards contains 52 cards with questions that children might ask: purple coloured cards discuss particularly upsetting topics. I cannot fault the thoroughness with which this pack has been produced.’

    Special Award - Children - Runner Up

    Runner Up of the Special Award for Children - My Heart OpMy Heart Op
    British Heart Foundation, 2016

    This is a printed resource for 13-19-year-old patients about the process of having heart surgery. There is no other detailed printed information specifically for this audience about heart surgery which covers the topics featured in this book.  

    It was reviewed by Patient Information Specialist Mrs Nargis S Mandry who commented:

    ‘The information in the booklet is very good. It shows excellent involvement of all health professionals; the copy is reviewed by heart specialists (nurses or doctors). It also shows excellent involvement of young people who have either had a heart operation or are planning to have one. It’s clear they had a lot of input in this resource design, layout and copy style. The opening pages allow patients to fill in their personal and medical details, what operation they are having, why they are having it – which means this booklet immediately allows user to make it their personal journey planner.'

    Special Award - Decision-Making - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for Decision-Making - Which? Birth ChoiceWhich? Birth Choice
    Which?, 2016

    Which? identified that there was no single resource that helped women use the findings of the study and compare information on maternity units in their local area. To aid this complex decision-making process Which? launched Which? Birth Choice (which.co.uk/birth-choice), a free online resource that provides information, advice and a unique interactive tool to help pregnant women and their partners understand their maternity options and make informed decisions when deciding where to give birth.

    It was reviewed by Mrs Sarah Smith Director of HeathSmith Consulting who commented:

    'This is a great resource. The main information is really focused and tailored and provides good decision support around a challenging area for new mums in particular. It’s well-written and user-friendly, easy to navigate and find what you want. The information is very practical and helps users to think about what they want from their birth and how to prepare themselves. There are some good FAQs and expert advice and the information about different birthing centres is great. This really puts power in the hands of users and helps them make informed and evidence-based choices. The only suggestions I would make would be to include more personal perspectives or stories from new mums.'

    The overall objective of Our Journey folder is to empower families and carers of children with brain injury as they continue the on-going journey of rehabilitation. The practical passport-type tool is not only somewhere to log key information but, with the additional cue cards, it also acts as a supportive prompt for families.

    It was reviewed by Ms Catherine Macadam the immediate past BMA PLG Chair who commented:

    ‘I was very impressed with the thought and preparation that has gone into producing this resource. It is clear that patients have been able to steer the project towards meeting their needs at all stages. The resource is beautifully designed and laid out with colour coding and helpful summaries on each section divider. The format, which allows personal information from the child and from professionals, together with prompts for discussions with professionals, make it feel both personal and empowering and hence very likely to be used. I particularly like that you can download additional sheets from the website to include in the folder.’

    Special Award - Easy Read - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for Easy-Read - Independence PackIndependence Pack
    CHANGE, 2016

    This Easy Read resource is the first of its kind and has been developed to support people with learning disabilities, autism and/or challenging behaviour detained in inpatient psychiatric care to exercise their rights and have choice and control over their care and treatment.

    It was reviewed by Ms Catherine Macadam the immediate past BMA PLG Chair who commented:

    ‘This resource seeks to address a very important need in respect of this client group but, because of the complexity and the numerous variables that apply to different people at different times, it has to cover a lot of quite complex information. I was impressed by the way service users were involved in the production of this document. By providing space for personal information it allows the service user to make it as relevant to them as possible.’

    Motor Neurone Disease Association, 2014 

    This was written as a direct conversation with anyone who needs an Easy Read format about motor neurone disease (MND). The primary audience is people with learning disabilities, but it is flexible in approach, so that people with lower literacy levels or difficulties with reading will find it useful.

    It was reviewed by Ms Julia Parnaby Head of Knowledge and Information at the Alzheimer's Society who commented

    ‘This is a very high quality resource which is attractive and thoughtfully put together with care for its intended audiences. It is accessible and clear and makes good use of images as well as white space and clear large fonts. MNDA have made great efforts to engage with users and experts to ensure that best practice and incremental learning have been applied through the development process.’

    Special Award - Ethics - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for Ethics - When Someone DiesWhen Someone Dies
    Marie Curie, 2015

    This resource is for the family members and friends of someone who has died from a terminal illness. It is designed to be a sensitive and comprehensive guide to all the practical and emotional issues that may arise after the death. Readers are encouraged to dip in and out of the guide at a pace that they feel comfortable with. It also includes information about supporting children through a bereavement as children and grandchildren are often affected by a terminal illness in the family.

    BMA ethics committee chair John Chisholm chose this resources as the Ethics Winner. He commented:

    ‘This is a comprehensive resource, written in a clear, consistent and unbiased manner, and it contains a superb chapter on supporting children which includes a masterly section on the questions children may ask.’

    It was reviewed by Ms Isobel Booth. Content Editor, NHS Choices who commented

    ‘An enormous amount of work has clearly gone into making this booklet so comprehensive yet easy to use and understand. I was impressed by the wide-ranging list of 16 reviewers which includes experts from all the areas the content covers, and that they reflected Marie Curie’s UK-wide remit and were involved at three stages of the booklet’s production. The content was extensively researched and drew on both clinical and practical advice sources. It provides a wealth of practical, action-oriented information about some complex topics and emotions and does a good job of explaining them clearly and of referencing other useful organisations and information throughout. The booklet itself shows high production values with excellent navigation enabling people to dip into the booklet for reference over a period to time and a high standard of design and layout. I was pleased to see that Marie Curie used digital promotion like search marketing to spread the word about the booklet to people not tapped into the charity’s own channels. Although dissemination of this booklet through Marie Curie touchpoints was strong, going beyond their own networks widens their reach further and I think this booklet would also be useful for people whose loved one died from causes other than terminal illness.’

    Special Award - Ethics - Runner Up

    Runner Up of the Special Award for Ethics - Preparing a Child for LossPreparing a Child for Loss
    Macmillan Cancer Care, 2015

    This booklet was produced with Winston’s Wish for parents who have a diagnosis of terminal cancer and are nearing the end of life. It aims to support them in having the difficult conversations necessary to prepare a child for the death of a parent or close family member. It has information about the language parents might use, the ways in which children of different ages understand the concept of death, and tips for choosing the right time and place to have these conversations. It also signposts to other sources of support available to families at this difficult time.

    It was reviewed by Patient Information Specialist Mrs Nargis S Mandry who commented:

    ‘This is an excellent publication. Macmillan are very experienced at creating printed resources so it is expected that their booklet will be a high standard. However this booklet really deserves recognition. It deals with a very difficult subject in a balanced and sensitive manner. Excellent use of layout, bullet lists, real-life experiences to deliver key messages (use of a real-life case study to create a patient journey). This resource is an excellent example of collaboration between two charities, sharing their expertise to create a resource that will make a real difference to parents preparing for end of life. I feel confident many parents living with terminal cancer will find this resource very useful.’

    The resource was developed as a simple tool that made it easy for clinicians to carry out a brief behaviour change intervention with patients who had diabetes and were at higher risk of complications. There are three discreet information prescriptions (IP), relating to the key targets in diabetes, HbA1c, blood pressure and cholesterol.  

    This was reviewed by Ms Andrea Heath Information Specialist at NICE:

    ‘This is well-written and useful for patients. The resource was developed via workshops, diabetes consultants, GPs and practice nurses and people with diabetes.’

    Special Award - Long-Term Conditions - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for Long-Term Conditions - Secondary Breast Cancer Resource PackSecondary Breast Cancer Resource Pack
    Breast Cancer Care, 2015

    This pack is for anyone diagnosed with secondary (metastatic) breast cancer, their family and friends. It aims to give them information about living with secondary breast cancer alongside tools that can help someone manage their condition. The care and treatment of secondary breast cancer has improved, but it’s become apparent that patients need information that can be tailored to their specific situation to help them manage what, for some, is a chronic condition that remains so for a number of years.

    It was reviewed by Mrs Sarah Smith Director of HeathSmith Consulting who commented:

    ‘This is a lovely resource. It has clearly benefited from some high quality user involvement which, given the subject matter, is an achievement in itself. It’s well-tailored to the audience; there are monitoring tools, questions to ask at appointments, a spinal cord compression card to remove and keep in a purse or wallet and sections on living with secondary breast cancer and end of life decisions that can be removed if women aren’t ready to read them. It’s very well-written and the tone is supportive but realistic. There are no images, photos or diagrams, but it’s well-designed and laid-out. There is a pain and fatigue diary and useful pages for women to keep their own records of clinic visits and appointments. All in all, a really empowering and sensitively done resource.’

    Runner Up of the Special Award for Long-Term Conditions - A Younger Woman's Guide to Ovarian CancerA Younger Woman's Guide to Ovarian Cancer
    Target Ovarian Cancer, Ovacome, Ovarian Cancer Action and The Eve Appeal, 2015

    This is aimed at women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer under the age of 45. Every year over 1,000 women under the age of 50 are diagnosed. As the majority of women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer are older, this younger group often feel very isolated, with specific needs that aren’t addressed in existing information for women with ovarian cancer.

    It was reviewed by Ms Juliet C Brown, Evidence and Information Scientist at Health Improvement Scotland who commented
     
    ‘I think this is a fantastic resource and I particularly like that different charities have come together to work on this resource. There has been a lot of research and preparation behind this booklet but what really impresses me (apart from the co-working among the charities) is the sensitivity and respect demonstrated in the entry form that the producers have given to making as much use as possible of the patients and family participants who contributed: they collected their expertise in a variety of ways. I think the user involvement is outstanding and really impressive; this lifts the bar very high for other organisations.’

    Runner Up of the Special Award for Self-Care - Managing Fatigue after a Bone Marrow or Stem Cell TransplantManaging Fatigue after a Bone Marrow or Stem Cell Transplant
    Anthony Nolan, 2015

    During a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, fatigue is a prominent side effect of treatment. After the transplant, fatigue can persist long-term and can have a big impact of quality of life on patients. This booklet was produced to fill a significant gap in information for patients and their families asking for further information about how they can manage their long-term fatigue.

    It was reviewed by Mrs Kay Roderick, former Healthpoint Information Officer who commented:

    ‘I particularly liked this booklet because real consideration for the recipient has gone into its production and layout style. For someone suffering the level of fatigue this patient group does, then to read through such a booklet could be exhausting. The breaking up of text, short paragraphs, the choice of colour, the inclusion of some relaxing colouring art therapy pages all seem to be designed to make the booklet as user-friendly as possible. It is an excellent and informative read. This was an aspect of bone marrow transplants I was ignorant of and it was quite an eye opener. I’d recommend that anyone managing to return to work after such a transplant gives this to their colleagues (and manager) to read; or even before they undergo the transplant so more support is available when back in the office.’

    Special Award - Trusts - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for Trusts - Delirium Information for Relatives and CarersDelirium Information for Relatives and Carers
    Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, 2015

    The trust is developing a delirium guideline and this leaflet is designed to supplement this, providing information on delirium for patients and carers. The intended audience includes any patient diagnosed with delirium. It can affect adults of all ages but is more common in people over 65 years. The booklet needed to appeal to all adults over 18 diagnosed with delirium and their relatives and carers.

    It was reviewed by Ms Catherine Macadam the immediate past BMA PLG Chair who commented:

    ‘This is a very simple information leaflet which provides some much-needed information very clearly. Because it is designed for use within one hospital trust it has been produced simply, but with input from clinicians and feedback from service users: the clinicians are identified on the leaflet and it also states the review date. The lay-out is very plain, but it does what it needs to and I can see that it would be a valuable thing to have. Well done for taking care over producing this fantastic resource which explains very clearly what can happen to people in hospital when they experience delirium. The language is simple but explains very effectively what the relatives need to know; it is easy to read. Everything is crystal clear and very helpful and empowering. I wish I had had something like this when my Mum had delirium in hospital.’

It is written for patients who are experiencing the most common nutrition related issues that can develop during treatment. It aims to give advice to help maximise oral intake and to manage side effects.

    It was revised by Dr Sue E Ablett formerly Executive Director Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group who commented:

    Special Award - User Engagement - Winner

    Winner of the Special Award for User Engagement - Thinking About End of Life CareThinking About End of Life Care
    Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, 2016

    The booklet is a supportive guide and is aimed at carers or family members of patients dying from a life limiting illness. It sets out clear guidance and offers practical information and support to families being cared for by Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust. The booklet covers information and support that is available to the carer or family member(s) at a very difficult time, while also offering clarity about the care that should be expected particularly referring to the ‘Five Priorities of Care’ for the dying person. The aim of the booklet is to help reduce fear and uncertainty around what to expect when someone nears the end of life. It allows carers and family members to engage and communicate openly with the health professionals involved in the care of their loved one. In addition to the support information contained in the booklet it also introduces the new concept of a carer’s diary to aid initiation of conversation and improve communication.

    It was reviewed by Dr John W Chisholm, chair of the BMA medical ethics committee:
     
    ‘This is an excellent booklet which comprehensively addresses the issues of concern to its intended readership of carers and family members of dying patients and signposts to other resources. Its format and content would be highly suitable for adoption by other trusts, with appropriate tailoring to local circumstances. The content is empathetically and sensitively drafted, with many messages focusing on the differing needs of individuals, the need for individual care plans and the importance of listening and communication. The production values inherent in the booklet (presentation, layout, text, images) are high.’
