Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust gains PIF TICK
The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust has gained its PIF TICK.
The charity had to meet 10 key steps to become a trusted information creator.
Director Dr Jen Kelly said: “Gaining the PIF TICK shows we have a strong process for developing our health information resources.
“With so much information online, it can be difficult to know what to trust.
“This quality mark is a quick and easy way for people to be assured our information is reliable and trustworthy.
“Writing the best possible, reliable information is so important to the families and care teams that we support so we are proud to have received this important accreditation.”
The charity raises awareness and funds research into rare childhood cancers.
It produces educational materials and provides support to families.
PIF TICK manager Dan Wills said: “We are thrilled to welcome the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust to our ever-growing community of accredited PIF TICK members.
“Accurate, accessible, evidence-based information is key to increasing patient empowerment and improving health outcomes.”
