Suzanne Millar, Senior eHealth Project Officer and team won the ‘Infrastructure’ category with their poster ‘Using eHealth to help patients understand their cancer care: The development and implementation of an electronic cancer treatment summaries system (Tsum)’ while Beverley Finch, EPQi Programme Manager and team won the ‘Person-Centred’ category for ‘What’s it all about ALFY?’ which highlights a new local telephone advice line for older people. This poster was a double winner with Beverley and the team also winning the ‘People’s Choice Award.’
