OPEN Health was delighted to have the opportunity to support this event in a number of ways. Gavin Jones, Director of Rare Disease at OPEN Health, was asked to judge the awards. Commenting on the entries, Gavin says: ‘There were so many brilliant and moving films that the judging was tough but definitely rewarding and inspiring. The winners added creativity and personal stories to enable the viewer to convey their message effectively. Given that there are over 7000 rare diseases it is important that patients and charities share their stories with impact to raise awareness of their disease, ongoing research, access to treatments and their initiatives to support patients’.

OPEN Health also sponsored an awards category – Best Aspiring Film Maker-Charity Collaboration, offering a prize of a ‘communications clinic’ with the winning patient group and a number of free days of communications support. Vicky Bramham, MD of the our PR agency, was very happy to offer help: ‘We are delighted to be supporting the Rare Film Festival and the team is excited at the prospect of working with the winner of the Best Aspiring Film Maker-Charity Collaboration category to enhance their communications activities. Together we can ensure their story is told and in turn more support garnered for their organisation and patients living with the disease.’

Once you’ve identified some potential collaborators, it’s time to take a closer look at what should be in the packages your training provider offers. Here are six vital features you should prioritize to select the training that will help your team fulfil their potential as partners in delivering high-quality and effective healthcare to patients.
