    #ConcussionClever – PIF Best Poster Competition Entry 2016

    At the PIF Annual Conference on Wednesday 25 May 2016 we will be holding our Best Poster Competition.  Entries to the competition will demonstrate partnership working to improve healthcare information and support.

    The best judged poster on the day, as voted for by delegates, will win a prize. Over the next few days we will be showcasing the entries to the competition. We start below with a submission from The Children’s Trust.

    You can find out more details about the conference and how you can attend here: www.pifonline.org.uk/2016-conference


    Our poster details the work The Children’s Trust has undertaken to produce quality information on the subject of concussion in children.

    There has been increased public interest on the topic of concussion and its potential dangers; including many high-profile stories and even a Hollywood film.

    It has also become evident that concussion is something that is often considered as a minor affliction, something that it easily recovered from. Many people do not know that concussion is a type of brain injury.

    There have also been recent universal guidelines released on the ‘return to school and activity after concussion’.

    This is our reasoning behind producing online material and supporting campaign on concussion in children, with an aim of educating families and educational professionals.

    The poster will further detail our aims and objects and will also reflect our partnering with various clinicians, researchers and other organisations to create the material, as well as family and user input.
