What is therapeutic empathy?
What kind of empathy is beneficial to patients and practitioners?
Tuesday, 24th October 2017, Hosted by the Oxford Empathy Programme, University of Oxford
There is growing evidence to suggest that empathy may benefit patients and practitioners. However, some argue that empathy is impossible to achieve and could even cause harm. Join us at this interactive one-day workshop that brings together clinicians, researchers and patients to explore these conflicting aspects of empathy in healthcare and research.
Just as I valued being able to present my work abroad (at SAPC), I thought others in the SAPC community might want to do the same thing by presenting here in Canada. I am a Canadian family physician researcher who has presented at SAPC twice - once as the 2011 SAPC/NAPCRG Travel Prize Recipient (“Nocturnal leg cramps and prescriptions that precede them”) and again in 2014 when I chose to submit another research presentation.
The SAPC North Team are looking forward to welcoming you to this year's SAPC North Conference.
The meeting is being held 23-24 November at the Castle Green Hotel in Kendal.
The organising team are now inviting submission of abstracts for oral or poster presentation.
To submit, please send your abstract as a word document with the following headings:
Keynote speakers; Professor Roger Jones, Professor David Fitzmaurice and College Chair Helen Stokes-Lampard.
Abstract submission deadline: 25th February 2018 at 11pm
