dbda are delighted for client JDRF who last week were celebrating schools programme “Talking T1” being Highly Commended in the Best Cross-organisational Partnership of the Year category at the Quality in Care Diabetes Awards.
The “Talking T1″ Schools Programme, developed by dbda for the type 1 diabetes charity was produced to enable school staff, teachers, and school nurses to understand the needs of children with type 1 diabetes in the classroom and support the management of the condition in school.
Resources, include: curriculum linked activity plans, school management guides and procedure templates and parent information guides. The programme was updated for secondary schools this year with the addition of a film written and produced by dbda featuring a day in the life of two teenagers with type 1.
JDRF and project partners Lilly acknowledged dbda’s contribution Simon Mitchell – Community Relationships Manager at JDRF “Of course, the wonderful suite of resources that we now have available for schools and families affected by type 1 would not have been possible without your valuable expertise, and for that I thank you.”
The Quality in Care (QiC) Programme highlights good practice and collaboration between the NHS, patient groups and the industry in specific therapy areas. Therapy areas currently covered by QiC are Diabetes and Excellence in Oncology.
