I went to the Bob Sang Memorial Lecture by Sir Ian Kennedy this evening. Reflections on this another day.
But sitting with friends beforehand I learnt about this programme and website which creates evocative and telling videos of patient experiences. Entitled Pilgrim Projects, the videos focus on an incident or episode in a patient’s or carer’s or health professional’s life – rather than their whole story. They do a lot of work for the NHS and universities and I am looking forward to viewing them later. Shame on me for not knowing about it or sharing it before.
And here’s some good old Aussie common sense on why scientists need to communicate to a wider audience.
