Clinician and Patient Bookmarks with resources

We have two bookmarks available for order from our Darwin office. They are perfect for handing out to clinicians and/or patients. The first bookmark is for clinicians and features a QR code which quickly links to the ARF Diagnosis and Guideline App while the back contains information on our free e-learning modules. The second bookmark is for patients and features a QR code to quickly link the Treatment Tracker App, which is an app to remind people when their injections are due. The back features a link to our resources page and highlights the 'Sharing a Heartbeat' short film.
