Event description

Description

Patient Experience Week is a global event to celebrate the people who impact on the patient experience every day. It is held in the last week of April each year. 2018 is the third year the Health Consumers’ Council (HCC) has convened events to mark this week.

This year, HCC is partnering with Child and Adolescent Health Service and the WA Primary Health Alliance to host a Patient Experience Week Breakfast. This is a free event to bring together clinicians, health professionals, consumers, carers and community to hear from Lucy Mayes, the author of Beyond the Stethoscope.

Our health care system is sick. We live in an era of factory style medicine, spiralling costs, complex and chronic conditions, and doctors at the heart of it under pressure as never before. Lucy Mayes asked doctors on the front line how they make meaning in their work, what quality medicine looks like to them and what their hopes are for the future of medicine. What emerged were consistent messages about elements of practice that the culture and systems of medicine still struggle to understand and support; the power of humanism, compassion, listening, the therapeutic relationship, preventative care and the doctor’s own wellbeing journey.

Beyond the Stethoscope is for doctors, patients and for those who work in or have an interest in healthcare. It will leave readers shocked, moved and inspired by the struggles, wisdom and insights of those who sit before them in that most ancient and intimate of humanist exchanges: that of doctor and patient.

Lucy Mayes is a trained lawyer, social worker and company director who has a lifetime interest in human systems and purpose at work.

Event brought to you by WA Primary Health Alliance, Child and Adolescent Health Service and the Health Consumers’ Council of WA.
