The launch of animations from Understanding Patient Data

Understanding Patient Data (UPD) is a resource funded by the Wellcome Trust (an NCRI Partner) to support people - especially patients - to have conversations about patient data and its uses. 

Several members of the NCRI Consumer Forum have been involved in a project to design some animations to stimulate and illuminate those conversations.The animations are intended to bring to life what happens to patient data in the NHS and to illustrate the benefits of using patient data.  

The series of animations include:  

  • Patient data saves lives: the bigger picture 
  • A cancer diagnosis and patient data 
  • An asthma attack and patient data 
  • A heart attack and patient data   
  • Managing diabetes and patient data
  • A dementia diagnosis and patient data

You can find the animations at http://understandingpatientdata.org.uk/what-you-need-know or on the Facebook page.
