Webinar series – Challenging conversations with Geraldine Strathdee

challenging conversations with geraldine strathdee

This year, during covid-19, all healthcare services have rapidly changed the way in which they offer care to patients whether in hospitals or in the community. The pandemic has also changed the way in which we communicate with one another markedly. Challenging Conversations provides a forum for discussing many of these issues and focus on what we have learned and how we can make things better. It is an engaging, interesting and informative digital round table and brings together clinicians, experts and those with a range of lived experience. Please do register and come and be part of the conversation!
