Pause to create: webinar series

Inspiring doctors to enrich their clinical practice through the proven benefits of creativity

A series of five weekly events running from 19 August to 14 September 2020

These events provide an opportunity for you to relax away from the stresses of everyday life in medicine, to explore new creative experiences or rediscover those that have been long been forgotten. You will be able to learn about the evidence behind the benefits of creativity on mental wellbeing through the experiences of others who already utilise the humanities in their personal and professional lives. Through these events we hope you will leave feeling inspired and able to take some of the ideas with you to put into practice. 

This programme of events has been curated by Dr Nicola Davis, Clinical Oncology SpR. Please view the webinar series flyer for speaker biographies.
