Keeping you updated with what we’ve been up to
We’re thrilled to announce that myTube has scooped several awards at this year’s British Medical Association (BMA) Patient Information Awards. myTube provides advice for people living with Motor Neurone disease and considering the use of a gastronomy tube.
The platform won the BMA’s Special Award for Trusts, the Special Award for User Engagement and was runner-up for the Special Award for Decision-Making. One of the reviewers had this to say about myTube:
“I was very impressed by this resource. I admired its ambition and clearly stated objective to use patient stories to encourage change. The involvement of parents and their carers has been exemplary. Patients and carers were involved throughout the process; all key choices on the content and design of the resource were user-led, with the design and clinical teams enabling this.”
We worked alongside a number of partners to develop myTube, including Optical Jukebox, the Sheffield Institute for Transitional Neurosciences, MND Association, Glass and a very special group of patients and carers. We’d like to give a special mention to Marlene, one of our contributors who sadly passed away earlier this year.
It was a very special project for us and we’re delighted that it’s got such recognition from the medical and nutrition community. The ceremony took place last night at BMA House and it certainly looks like the myTube delegation had a great night!
