Becoming a paramedic: the negotiations of identity

Mark Garratt (Principal Lecturer, Coventry University)
How do university educated paramedic students negotiate and adopt their professional identity within the emergency care environment? Mark will explore the work of social theorists in relation to the influence of the structural field of practice within which they learn and work, such as social capital, and the conscious role of the individual. A key and lock metaphor will be used for considering concepts of identity negotiation, and to illustrate how individual identities may be shaped to fit the required "lock".

Delivering good news - does it really matter how it happens?

Sian Williamson (PhD Student, University of Warwick)
Lots of research in healthcare focuses on how we break bad news. However, very little has explored how we communicate good news results and the impact this has on patients. Sian will discuss how her research focuses specifically on receiving a result from breast cancer screening, and what challenges might be faced when these results are delivered through different communication channels.

Patients as partners in research: evolution or revolution?

Professor Sophie Staniszewska (Patient and Public Involvement and Experiences of Care)
Did you know that patients and the public have a key role to play in shaping what we do in universities, with the potential to change the nature of research worldwide? Some see this as an evolution of good practice while others see it as a revolution! Patients are increasingly becoming partners in projects, helping researchers focus on the right things that really help peoples’ lives. Sophie will discuss the many ways in which you could become involved in university research and help the public develop a stronger voice in helping to solve the health problems we face in the future.
