IPC advice and support for award winning MND guide for carers

The Motor Neurone Disease Association guidance for carers 'Caring and MND: support for you' recently won the prestigious British Medical Association Patient Information Resource of the Year 2016.

IPC Principal consultant, Dr Usha Boolaky acted as a mentor and expert reviewer for this resource, which won against 211 entries from other charities, Trusts and NHS departments following a rigorous judging process involving a panel of 31. The carer guide also won another award in the Self Care category. Catherine Macadam, immediate past BMA PLG Chair, reviewed the guide for the awards and said, “…this resource is brilliant... It speaks directly to carers’ experiences. I think it could be used by anyone who is caring for someone with a life-limiting illness.”
