What Role do the Senses and the Mind Have in Healthcare?

The School of QI were pleased to welcome Claire Sokell Thompson, founder of Vetyver, to lead our workshop in April.

Claire's sensory agency Vetyver was commissioned to research the impact of the senses in healthcare, the role of contemplation for patients and audit the sensory impact within Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals as part of the development of their new dedicated Cancer Care building.  Claire will provide an introduction to her interesting work with Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital using the sensory environment, including transferable learning applicable to all improvement work.

For more information please contact Claire via email claire@vetyver.co.uk.
