Humanising Healthcare - Life Lens Premiere 16 July

Tuesday 16 July 2024, 17.00- 18.30

Shakespeare Room, University of Winchester Business School, West Downs Quarter, Romsey Road SO22 5HT, Winchester

Join us for the premiere of our Life Lens project, a collaboration between the University of Winchester and Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

We will be showcasing six short digital stories that document people’s experiences of receiving hospital care. Using digital storytelling techniques, we have invited individuals with diverse experiences to share their stories through film, photos, and music. Our goal is to foster empathy and understanding among healthcare professionals and healthcare students, and to humanise healthcare through the power of personal narratives. Some of our storytellers and the Life Lens team will share their insights on what we can learn from these powerful films.

Light refreshments will be provided.

There are limited spaces so to avoid disappointment, sign up to secure your place here.
