  • Lecture

A conversation about representing and maintaining the personhood of someone receiving care in a healthcare setting.

How do the people treating a person connect with them, find common ground, reflect their wishes, explain what is happening in a way that is relatable and understandable, personalise care to that person, include those around the person? In what ways should life in a healthcare setting, reference life outside a healthcare setting?

The panel will include representatives from the following three organisations who will be presenting projects on:

  • UCLH – Building a whole picture of the person to ensure their care is contextualised in who they are.
  • Rhode Island School – translating a person's words and wishes to ensure the right care
  • Helix – A tool for parents to facilitate memory making, to reinforce as much as possible, the normal, everyday lives they had with their children.

Hosted by Tom Stables – Industry Projects Designer at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design
