This workshop examines the naturally occurring supportive networks, how they help and how they can be mobilised. The people in the network support each other as well as the patient. Looking at our own networks helps to reimagine what is important for us all when undergoing experiences of death, dying, loss and care giving.
This free workshop is aimed at front line practitioners and is only available to those healthcare professionals working for a Staffordshire based healthcare organisation.
This session will be facilitated by Dr Julian Abel
Julian spent his clinical life as a palliative care specialist doctor. He has developed a special interest in compassionate communities, initially as part of supporting people undergoing experiences of death, dying, loss & care giving. Over the last 4 years he has worked with Frome Medical Practice applying the compassionate community approach to healthcare in general, with some startling results. He is Director of Compassionate Communities UK, a charity which aims to share the lessons learnt in both palliative care and primary care more broadly.
