Stories of Illness & Health

October 1, 2015

Have you or anyone you know experienced chronic or acute illness? How does the art of storytelling work to improve health care education and the experience of patient care? In what ways are doctors, patients and other health professionals storytellers? How can researchers, educators, students, and members of the greater public work together to produce compassionate approaches to patient and family-centred care?

Stories of Health and Illness at Western invites members of the public, both campus and community, to join us to experience the stories of people and families living with illness. Through stories shared by participants who have dealt with end of life, audience members will hear first-hand accounts of what is important to patients throughout their health care experience. Following each story, we will invite the audience to reflect on their experience of each narrative and engage in an open dialogue with our storytellers.

Our moderator for the evening will be Dr. Shannon Arntfield, Professor of Obstetrics-Gynaecology at the Schulich School Medicine & Dentistry.
