ISF and the SelfCare Journal are pleased to announcing the result of the ISF/SelfCare Award for Best Published Paper in 2018. The winning paper is by Amanda Lees, Kit Tapson and Sanjay Patel and is entitled: “A qualitative evaluation of parents’ experiences of health literacy information about common childhood conditions” (SelfCare 2018;9(1)1-15).
Evaluating resources designed to enhance health literacy is an important and often neglected aspect of self-care. Although small, the study chosen to receive this award yielded findings with practical consequences for how information is delivered to parents and with relevance to others designing health information resources. For this reason the judges considered it a worthy winner of the Annual ISF/SelfCare prize and £750 for the best published paper in 2018.
