Autonomy and Environment
Our abstract for a conference paper reflecting on an understanding of environment and the relationships this affords towards supporting a person's autonomy was accepted for the Association for Medical Humanities annual conference in Limerick. We are looking forward to writing up our final paper and to hear other papers critically exploring space in its broadest sense: "its metaphors, configuration and geographies."
two artists meet a philosopher
We are two artists who work in The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice. In September 2016 we began meeting regularly with philosopher Ben Colburn, thanks to an introduction from Catriona Forrest, then Public Engagement Officer with the Wellcome Trust-funded research project Global Interventions at the End of Life, University of Glasgow.
Practitioner Working Groups
In the development of the Tracing Autonomy Framework, a series of working groups were held with clinical and family support practitioners from The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice and with practitioners from Sense Scotland and Enable Scotland.
