Relationships and stories in healthcare: what matters most to you in life and death

11:00am-4:00pm on Saturday 16 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology, Robinson Way (Close to the Junction of Robinson Way and Long Road), CB2 0SZ

Join us for an interactive experience of a creative research project where we'll share, explore, and reflect together. We'll explain how we brought together people with different experiences in palliative care and mental healthcare for serious illness. We'll also talk about why relationships in healthcare are so crucial to getting healthcare right for people

After viewing the photographic series of pictures that we produced from the themes in our research project, you will have an opportunity to participate in a mini version of our study workshop activities, and also to consider how the use of creative research methods can change how we think about safety in healthcare.

We understand that this topic can be sensitive, so feel free to participate at your own comfort level. Everyone, including families, will be welcome, and we can signpost people to additional support if needed.

Daniel Regan is a photographic artist, producer, consultant who specialises in exploring complex and difficult emotional experiences, and Executive Director of the Arts & Health Hub, a not-for-profit organisation supporting artists and cultural producers who are exploring health, wellbeing and what it means to be human.

Sarah Yardley is an Associate Professor of Palliative Medicine in the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department, University College London. Ever curious about how people do, and experience, the personal and professional work of healthcare, her research focuses on the role of relationships and construction of meaning from experiences with serious physical and/or mental illness.

At THIS Institute (The Healthcare Improvement Studies Institute), we believe efforts to improve care should always be based on the highest quality evidence. So, we’re boosting research activity to provide more clarity on what works in improving healthcare, what doesn’t, and why.
