NEW PODCAST SERIES from the ESRC Humanising Healthcare team
Episode 1 of a new Podcast Series ‘The Art of Medicine: Love of Humanity’ is released today (18th November 2022). In this first episode Dan Goodley talks to Simon Cramp. Simon has been a leading force in many campaigns to ensure that people with disabilities are treated as full human beings - with rights and the full capacity to play a meaningful part in all aspects of community life. As a person with learning disabilities himself he has first hand experience of the healthcare system and has written about his campaigning life in his book - the brilliantly titled 'Don't Cramp My Style' (2017, available on Amazon). Dan asks Simon to consider the idea of Humanising Healthcare which, he reminds us, has to be considered in relation to the values that society attaches to people with learning disabilities.
