An event organised by the Health and Welfare Research Group, CRASSH , University of Cambridge.

Date: Thursday 21st January Time: 17:00 – 19:00 Location: Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RX

Health and social work professionals work at the frontiers of knowledge in health and welfare and yet their professional training programmes do not always dedicate time to questions of epistemology and ontology. What impact does this have on their ability to deliver good care?

This seminar event will include presentations by the following speakers, followed by a roundtable discussion.

Dr Cathy Aymer (Social Worker/Senior Lecturer), School of Health Sciences and Social Care, Brunel University Professor Toyin Okitikpi, Visiting Professor in Social Work, University of Bedfordshire Dr Elizabeth Fistein (Psychiatrist/Ethics and Law Teaching Coordinator), School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge

Faculty staff, students, clinicians/practitioners and anyone else keen to discuss these ideas in an academic environment are welcome.

*The title of the seminar is based on Dr Aymer and Prof Okitikpi’s paper in Social Work Education which is available at or from the event organiser. You do not need to have read the article to attend the event.
