The Problem with care: priorities, politics and research
29th May 2014
Room 452, Durham University Business School, Mill Hill Lane, Durham

You are invited to the launch event of the Organising Care Special Interest Group hosted by the Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing & Durham University Business School.  The aim of the group is to encourage critical consideration of the effects of organising on care – how the act of organising people, professions, services, resources, regulation, ideas, procedures and pro­cesses fundamentally effects experiences of caring and being cared for in health social and related sectors.

With above in mind we have brought together an expert panel to open up a discussion of what are or ought to be the priorities for political, policy and research action.  Following their presentations there will be time for open debate with questions invited from the audience to our panellists.
