10.15 – 10.45      Meeting the health information needs of young people today, whilst tackling potentially taboo topics
Nick Posford - CEO, CICRA: better lives for children with crohns and colitis

In 2017, CICRA was approaching its 40th anniversary. As a charity that supported children affected by inflammatory bowel disease, and their families, it was important to update our information to meet the needs of young people today. We had to completely rethink how we developed it, the formats we might need and how our target audiences might want to engage with it, all whilst tackling potentially taboo topics.
