Compassion Fatigue: Changing Culture in the NHS (Thinking about Health Annual Conference, 26-28 June, Birmingham)

Compassion Fatigue: Changing Culture in the NHS
Thinking about Health Annual Conference
26 – 28 June 2013,  Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Birmgingham

Can the language of compassion capture the moral problems confronted by the NHS, or might it obfuscate and distract us from more subtle and demanding issues?

Through a series of plenary addresses, workshops, panels and shared opportunities for discussion, ‘Compassion Fatigue’ will provide an opportunity to explore the language of compassion, and the impact that it has on the practice of health care provision. Workshops will address the politics of compassion; compassion and spirituality; compassion and nursing; compassion and the experience of the patient. Panels will bring together the perspectives of GPs, nurses and patients.
