Anxiety, joy, grief, fear, curiosity. How does it feel to practise surgery?
At this interactive ‘Surgical Speed-Meet’ you can chat to surgeons about the place of emotions in their work. The aim is to demystify surgery and open up 1:1 conversations between the public and practitioners about the range of emotions involved in surgical care. This informal evening event will follow a ‘speed-dating’ format, with attendees spending a few minutes speaking to each surgeon. At the end of the event, come together as a group over refreshments to reflect on what we’ve learned.
The event will involve a small group of around 30 participants (15 surgeons, 15 members of the public), and will also feature historical perspectives from researchers on the Surgery & Emotion project. Refreshments will be provided.
The Surgery & Emotion project is supported by Wellcome Trust Research Enrichment – Public Engagement funding.
