The Patient as Person Full Report

Posted in Arts & Health, News by chrisfremantle on June 27, 2013

In May Donald Urquhart asked me to do a presentation on his behalf at a conference called ‘The Patient as Person’ hosted at the Albertus Institute in Edinburgh.  They have just published the full report here.

Along side other presentations on the policy context and the philosophical issues I presented on the physical environment and how Donald Urquhart creates human spaces in healthcare contexts.  Obviously Donald isn’t the only person/artist/designer working this way or tackling these challenges, but it was very useful to focus on one practice and the key issues that one process of research and development has highlighted.  What is the expression?  “Other artists are available”?
