The aim of HeadSmart is to reduce the time it takes to diagnose children and young people with brain tumours in the UK by educating healthcare professionals and the public about the symptoms of brain tumours in children and young people. Reducing the time to diagnosis should reduce the long term disability that many children and young people diagnosed with a brain tumour currently experience.
The HeadSmart campaign is a partnership between the Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) at the University of Nottingham, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) and the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (SDBTT), and has been funded by The Health Foundation and the SDBTT.
