Description

From Detection Dogs to Therapy Pets: Animals in Healthcare

Animals have long held a role in health settings, from the ancient use of medicinal leeches to the introduction of rescue dogs in the Alps in the early eighteenth century. Today, this role encompasses an ever broader range of interventions. At this public lecture, hear from Claire Guest about how her dog, Daisy, saved her life by detecting her breast cancer, meet a therapy pet and find out about the role dogs play in health and social support for those experiencing homelessness.

Every day, thousands of people rely on the care of nurses, midwives and health care assistants (HCAs). The RCN Foundation gives vital support back to these caring professionals. We safeguard nurses, midwives and HCAs in need offering support services and financial assistance to get their lives back on track. We invest in nursing care and fund learning development for the nursing community. We fund innovative nurse-led projects that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of the public.
