Trilogy Writing & Consulting has been awarded the PIF TICK – the UK’s only assessed quality mark for print and online health and care information.
To be awarded the ‘trusted information creator’ status, Trilogy had to undergo an assessment showing it met 10 key criteria.
This means you can be assured that what you are reading, watching, or listening to is evidence-based, understandable, jargon-free, up-to-date, and produced to the best possible standard.
Lisa Chamberlain James, Senior Partner at Trilogy Writing & Consulting, said: “Gaining the PIF TICK shows we have a strong process for developing our clinical and scientific communication documents. It is clear that the demand and need for information for the non-specialist audience is growing, and it is equally clear that with the current information overload it is difficult to know what to trust. This quality mark is an unequivocal way for people to be assured our information is reliable and trustworthy.”
The PIF TICK, which launched in May 2020, is run by the non-profit Patient Information Forum (PIF).
In July 2021, a public website, www.piftick.org.uk, was launched to raise awareness of PIF TICK-accredited members and help people find trusted health information.
The site also includes guides on topics including spotting false health information and understanding evidence.
PIF TICK manager Dan Wills said: “We are thrilled to welcome Trilogy Writing & Consulting to our ever-growing community of accredited PIF TICK members. Accurate, accessible, evidence-based information is key to increasing patient empowerment and improving health outcomes.”
