E6 Demonstration Event with Eli Anderson, Thursday 30th September 2021

We are pleased to announce the details of the first multiplier event of StoryAidEU project. The event will be held virtually, online on Thursday 30th of September 2021 and there will be two sessions – morning and evening (similar format/information at both).

This 90 min demonstration event aims to present an innovative approach for integrating the principles of humanism in the delivery of healthcare. We strongly believe that storytelling can become a crucial tool for educators to reveal the hidden and silent stories of patients, healthcare professionals, loved ones, and vulnerable populations, and in particular through the practice of interprofessional collaboration. StoryAID Director Eli Anderson, as a storytelling expert, will lead the event.

StoryAidEU Presents 2nd #INHWELive

The StoryAidEU project has produced another video for the International Network for Health Workforce Education’s #INHWELive series.  The presentation looks at the concept analysis conducted by the consortium on humanism . You can watch project member Catrina Heffernan’s presentation on YouTube below.

The original idea for INHWE Live, shaped at the end of 2019, was to use INHWE’s many events to ensure that their members could share ideas with colleagues across the globe. Unfortunately this concept had to be put on hold but INHWE decided to test the idea by asking their members to record 20 minute presentations that they are willing to share on YouTube. These videos are then premiered at a set time and the presenter can answer questions live.
