Stories of Illness & Health event



Monday, March 3, 2014

How does the art of storytelling improve health care education and the experience of patient care? In what ways are doctors, patients, and other health professionals storytellers? How can researchers, educators, students, and members of the greater public work together to produce compassionate approaches to patient-centred care?

Stories of Illness & Health at Western invites members of the public, both campus and community, to join us to experience the stories of people living with illness. Through stories shared by participants who have dealt with chronic or acute conditions, audience members will hear first-hand accounts of what is important to patients throughout their health care experience. Following each story, we will invite the audience to reflect on their experience of each narrative and engage in an open dialogue with our storytellers. The moderator for the evening will be Dr. Jeff Nisker, Professor of Obstetrics-Gynaecology at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and Scientist at the Children’s Health Research Institute.

The event is free and open to the community.
