Join us as we listen to the voices of patients, their advocates and distinguished academics who have delved deeply into the meaning and many aspects of suffering.
We’ll be joined by a range of academic speakers, including Deborah Bowman MBE FRSA, Jocelyn Cornwell and Brian Lobel. Together we will explore how we can increase our awareness, sensitivity and creative engagement with the subject.
At this event, you’ll gain a richer perspective of illness and suffering, gain confidence in engaging creatively and sensitively with suffering and explore reasons why clinicians and society avoid or are inattentive to suffering amongst other topics. We will give voice to those who have experienced serious illness and to those whose voices are often ignored or not heard.
