We are currently seeking proposals for papers, presentations, performances and posters. Our aims are to acknowledge and celebrate the importance and growth of storytelling for health and to understand and promote good practice in line with the theme of this year’s conference – the patient’s story. We are particularly keen to hear about projects which privilege the patient’s story as told by the patients themselves, which support patients to articulate their own story or others to learn from listening more carefully to the stories of patients in any and all areas of health.
The conference will have two halves:
On Thursday 27th June at the Atrium in Cardiff we will be hosting a student conference. This is aimed at both under-graduate and post-graduate students.
On Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June at The Waterfront Museum in Swansea we will host the main conference.
The conference themes are the same for both halves.
We are keen to embrace storytelling in the widest possible sense and through a range of art forms, including but not limited to:
Biopsychosocial approaches to health
Contributions may take the form of short presentations, performances, films, posters or workshops. We are seeking contributions that are innovative in their means of presentation and also welcome contributions in other formats. Please specify the format of your presentation in your abstract and include details of your anticipated running time and technical requirements. Time will be limited so for most presentations we will be allocating 12mins for TED style talks in order to give plenty of space for delegate interaction and discussion.
Please DOWNLOAD and complete the submission form and send to Prue Thimbleby firstname.lastname@example.org by 23.59 GMT on Sunday 18th November 2018. You should state clearly how your proposal engages with the theme of the conference and should include details of anticipated running times and all technical requirements.
