Venue: St George’s, University of London
The one-day course will take the form of a series of talks by expert speakers from the UK and internationally, culminating in a panel and audience discussion at the end of the day. Our speakers will address the root causes of inequality in neuroscience research and clinical care, but also point to solutions for overcoming these. The programme will be followed by an informal networking event. We hope that the day will generate ideas for collaboration and solidarity in overcoming injustice for people living with the combined effects of neurological illness and social or economic marginalisation.
This course has been developed by the St George’s Clinical Neuroscience Practice MSc/PgCert team. Our MSc and PgCert programmes provide a solid foundation in the principles, practice, lived experience and service delivery of clinical neurosciences. They are strongly values-oriented, emphasising the equal contribution of the different health professions to clinical care, the inclusion of lived experience in learning and caring and structural factors such as patriarchy and coloniality that bias neuroscience research and care.
