Come along to MCR Global Health Society's first workshop of the year, 'Communication with Refugees in Healthcare', held at the CSLC (ground floor of Stopford Building)!
Join us for a workshop that encourages students to consider and discuss experiences of refugees in the UK.
We will focus on communication with refugees and how this can help or hinder their experience related to healthcare.
Our events team have worked tirelessly throughout the academic year to bring you the very best speakers for this, each offering a different perspective on this hugely relevant subject. Each mini-workshop will vary between a talk to an interactive discussion depending what topic is being considered.
Some more details of our speakers and their mini-workshops are as follows:
Dr Ruth Bromley — Lead for Ethics & Law at Manchester Medical School and a Clinical Fellow in Ethics, Law & Clinical Communication at University Hospital South Manchester.
Aristotle said that we should 'treat unequals unequally'...but what does this mean to us when considering Healthcare for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in the UK in the 21st Century? What does Virtue Ethics offer us to guide our way forwards? And to what lengths should we be prepared to go in order to apply the GMC edict of 'Do No Harm'?
Dr Rebecca Farrington is a GPwSI in Asylum Seeker Mental Health and a Senior Clinical Lecturer, who will be considering the specific mental health issues faced by some asylum seekers.
Jonathon Kazemb is a refugee from the Dominican Republic of Congo, and is a member of the Manchester Refugee Advisory Group. He will be talking about the NHS Welcome Project whilst drawing on his own experiences.
Mjed Hashem and Adil Yaqoob are project leaders for Communication with Refugees Training in Manchester, as part of STAR (Student Action for Refugees) and will be discussing what this training involves and what they have learnt during their time as organisers.
