12th May Lancaster, Workshop: Patient knowledge and involvement in healthcare

An event I am looking forward to: 

Royal Institute of Philosophy Workshop
Storey Institute, Lancaster
Monday 12th May

In recent years great efforts have been made to listen to “patient voices” in healthcare practice, research, and policy, but such initiatives have met with mixed success and many patients continue to feel that their view are overlooked (sometimes despite the best efforts of health care professionals). In this workshop we consider whether and why patient views matter. We ask what factors act to limit the possibilities for communication between patients and professionals, and consider how they might be overcome.
