Empowerment through care?

Seminar 3 in the series: CONVERSATIONS IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

Seminar Rooms 1 & 2, Chrystal Macmillan Building,
George Square, The University of Edinburgh

9 September 2013     1-4pm


Following on from two hugely popular events, this third seminar in the series will explore tensions between “independence, control and choice” as an agenda for driving services and the need of many people who are accessing those services for “care”.

We will discuss why care has been rejected by some as one-way and patronising, at the same time as exploring the potential for interdependent relationships which are both centred on care and empowering.

Policymakers, practitioners, researchers and service users will have an opportunity to engage with others working across professional, disciplinary and national boundaries. Interactive discussion sessions will explore

• What does effective, empowering care look like?
• How can we promote approaches to care that are empowering?
• What organisational structures enable care that is empowering?
• What are the barriers and threats to delivering care that is empowering?
