Missed Health in Crisis?

We concluded the final seminar in the Ireland in Crisis series by addressing the question of “Health in Crisis” . The (mis)management of diabetes, mental health care and the formation of identity around chronic illness were among the topics discussed. We would like to thank the speakers for their contributions; (our very own) Shane O’Donnell and Carol Ellis (UCD) and Liz Brosnan (UL). We are also very grateful for the insight provided by Dr Jo Murphy-Lawless on this issue, and her generous feedback to each of the researchers concerned.

Please note: Unfortunately, a technical error has arisen with the audio file. As such, we are unable to post it in the website. Apologies for this. we are doing our best to fix it and will post if/when possible!

In the meantime, please check out abstracts/papers  and presentations from this session on our seminars page.

Finally, we invite you to join our google group where you can continue the discussion with questions, comments and thoughts on the theme. To join click here.

Many thanks to all of the speakers, chairs and organisers involved in the seminar series and hope to see you all again soon for more events…
