Politics and Law

The values of healthcare do not operate in isolation from the political and legal context in which healthcare is carried on. In this dimension of the partnership's research, we explore the complex interactions of civic identity, law and policy for the ethos and practice of healthcare institutions.

A workshop on politics, law, leadership and compassion in healthcare was held on 5th November 2014.

One of the key themes of the meeting was 'Citizenship'. For more on this subject, please see Claire Gerada'a video on the right, and Joshua Hordern's article below.
