Event description

Description

What does patient engagement in research mean, and why does it matter? Join us for some food, film and debate to celebrate the launch of the Oxford Blood Group, a patient engagement group for haematology patients. We will be showing a short film - People are Messy. Produced in collaboration with the Theatre of Debate, People are Messy explores the experience of two young men with a rare inherited anaemia, and their efforts to contribute to clinical research (http://www.theatreofdebate.co.uk/). After the film we will hold a debate about patient involvement, moderated by Nigel Townsend, director of Theatre of Debate. The film recently toured the UK for patient audiences, with the support of the NIHR, and we are delighted to welcome it back to Oxford.

Some comments about People are Messy:

“It was an absolute pleasure having the opportunity and privilege to watch such an emotive and powerful film such as People are Messy. It focused on matters that were important to us as individuals and as a nation and reinforced the significance of patients within healthcare and medical research."

"Each screening had a profound effect on the audience ... and is testament to how wonderful this drama is. I hope that many more people have the chance to witness a unique and powerful film very soon.”

"...a true reflection of the many emotions that patients, carers, health care professionals, family and acquaintances go through when a single member of that unit is diagnosed with a critical illness."
