What do all healthcare educators have in common: what do they believe, know and do? This monograph reports on a national research project known as the Healthcare Educators’ Values and Activities Study (HEVAS). The aim of the project was to establish the shared values of, and key activities undertaken by, educators of healthcare professionals.Book Details
This book is about experience - the profound human experience of re-negotiating the physical and emotional balance between sickness and health, when that balance is tipped by the onset of disease and the experience overwhelms all others. It is not about cancer as a disease, or medical interventions and treatments. It is about what life feels like when all sense of normality, and all the hope for the future that accompanies good health, are suddenly buried by suffering that affects both the individual and the people who care for and about her.
The book is illustrated with original artwork by Jac Saorsa, taken from the Drawing Women’s Cancer project.Book Details
