Germany - Deutsche Leberhilfe e.V. – plans for WHD 2011
The idea: It’s only one more question for physicians to ask their patients during a blood test and it could really make an impact “Can we also check your liver enzymes?” We want to convince physicians to join in and ask this question with our high-profile “One more question!” awareness campaign.
The campaign: “We will initiate the campaign with strong partners: prominent medical specialists and well known actors who play the role of doctors in TV series, medical newspapers and publishing houses, and sponsors. During the course of the campaign targeted information materials and modules will be given out to doctors, patients and politicians. Newspaper advertisements and media announcements will ask physicians and medical staff all over Germany to stand up and join the ”one more quest ion” campaign! Doctors and their teams can do this by posing for a photo where they hold a “We ask the question!” sign in front of the camera. They can send their digital photos to the campaign website at www.einefragemehr.de
. In addition, camera teams will visit medical congresses, clinics and doctors’ offices individually to take more photos.
