Success at the BMJ Improving Health Awards
15 May 2013
The work of Cardiff Child Protection Systematic Reviews team has been recognised at this year's BMJ Improving Health Awards, with the accolade of 'Child Health Team of the Year'.
Jointly led by Professor Alison Kemp and Dr Sabine Maguire, the 'CORE INFO' team has developed an internationally recognised methodology for systematically reviewing the world literature with regard to child abuse and neglect.
Over the past ten years, their focus has been on the recognition and investigation of suspected abuse or maltreatment, providing current and accessible literature, whilst also recommending a research agenda for those working within the field.
The team were presented with the award at a ceremony held in London, on the evening of Thursday 9th May, and were one of four shortlisted in this category.
Professor Kemp says:
"We are delighted and honoured to receive the award.
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have been involved with our research over the years, including our panel of dedicated reviewers.
"We are also extremely grateful to the NSPCC for their financial support of this project over the past 10 years."
