Can Gratitude Inform High-Quality Care? (Talk and Walking Tour), rb&hArts


Hosted by rb&hArts,

Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust

When: 12.30-2pm, 2nd July 2018.

Location: Royal Brompton Hospital seminar room 2, Sydney St, Chelsea, London SW3 6NP

The 70th anniversary of the NHS is an opportunity to consider the role of gratitude in healthcare. A lot of gratitude is expressed which helps to maintain the morale of healthcare workers during times of great strain on the NHS. This talk by Giskin Day considers the expression and reception of gratitude in healthcare.

It's free but book early!

The talk will be followed by a walk around the hospital exploring expressions of gratitude (artworks, giving trees, poster-boards of cards, etc.).

Giskin Day is a Principal Teaching Fellow at Imperial College London where she leads on medical humanities, a discipline that explores the cultural contexts of medicine. She is soon to embark on a PhD at King’s College London on the topic of gratitude in healthcare.

Giskin Day will be considering the expression and reception of gratitude – past, present and future – as part of a ground-breaking study to be based at Royal Brompton Hospital.
