New methods to reimagine individuals’ health journey and environment

Wed, 3 July 12pm



Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, third Floor, Richmond Building, Queens Road, Bristol. BS8 1LN

Come and join us for a Brigstow Ideas lunch that brings together three of our current projects for brief work-in-progress presentations and an opportunity for questions and conversation from you. These interdisciplinary projects explore very different aspects of the individuals’ health journey and experience, from exploring storytelling tools to improve primary care consultations, looking at opportunities for digital technology to support older people through their transition into care by co-creating moments of connection with the people and spaces, through to researching and developing a peer-support network, designed by people with dementia for people with dementia.

The projects are:

  • Poetics in Practice with Genevieve Lively (Classics & Ancient History), Barbara Caddick and Rebecca Barnes (Bristol Medical School) and Daniel Morden (Storyteller).
  • Using Innovative Research Methods to Explore Post-Diagnosis Support with People with Dementia with Joe Webb (Bristol Medical School), Roy James (Forget Me Nots Research Group), Jemima Dooley (Bristol Medical School), Sandie Read (Forget Me Nots Research Group) and Harry Davis (Forget Me Nots Research Group).
  • Tangible Realities: Using objects and digital technologies to support the transition into sheltered accommodation with Roisin McNaney (Computer Science), Helen Manchester (Education) and Richard Pendlebury (Anchor Society).

Our understanding is that this venue is wheelchair accessible and a hearing loop is available.
