Trip has had patient information for many years. The logic being that a health professional may see a patient and then want to print off a patient information leaflet (PIL) to hand to the patient. Recently a contact asking if we’d heard of PIF TICK, we hadn’t! PIF TICK is:
“Having the PIF TICK on leaflets, websites, videos or apps shows an organisation’s health information has been through a professional and robust production process. To be awarded the PIF TICK an organisation must show its health information production process meets 10 criteria.“
To cut a long story short, we had a great conversation with Patient Information Forum (the ‘PIF’ in ‘PIF Tick’) and they alerted the organisations with the PIF TICK that Trip was interested in adding their content. Since then we’ve had lots of great new content from the likes of Target Ovarian Cancer, Crohn’s & Colitis UK and Mesothelioma UK.
This is a great initiative so please let us know of any great sources of patient information. Although PIF TICK is a UK-based initiative, we want global content. Don’t be shy…
