Shed Talks - Reflections on dignity and spirituality and their role in healthcare?

The School of Healthcare welcomes Professor Wilfred McSherry from Staffordshire University and the University Hospitals North Midlands.

16 July 1 pm – 2pm Free to attend

RM 4.12 Baines Wing, School of Healthcare, University of Leeds LS2 9JT

In recent years there have been a number of reports published that have highlighted significant failings in the care provided by health and social care professionals and institutions in the United Kingdom. Analysis of these reports reveals some recurrent themes and concerns associated with the perceived erosion of core values in care such as compassion, spirituality and dignity.

This presentation will explore the meaning of dignity and spirituality highlighting how refocusing our attention on these fundamental values may challenge the prevailing culture where individual and institutional attitudes do not recognize the humanity and individuality of people.

What are SHED Talks?

Led by top researchers in their field at the School of Healthcare these workshops are a fantastic opportunity to discuss how research conducted in the School could influence your clinical practice.

This talk is for a wide audience, including people with health conditions, parents, carers, healthcare professionals (medical and non-medical), academics, undergraduate students, taught postgraduate and postgraduate researchers.
