Wednesday 28 March 2018 – Parkinson’s Disease
It is 200 years since James Parkinson first described the condition bearing his name but only the last 50 years in which we have made significant advances in understanding causes and treatment strategies. The pace of this is accelerating and giving more hope to newly-diagnosed patients; although lots of challenges remain.
Consultant Neurologist, Dr Hardev Pall, will deliver a talk on the condition that affects over 100,000 people in the UK.
Tuesday 17 April 2018 – Long term effects of common medication
Anxiety, depression, weight gain, addiction, dependency; some of the long term negative effects of common medication, but do the benefits outweigh the risk?
The Trust’s Principal Pharmacist, Emma Suggett, speaks about the common medication we take and how they support us living longer or healthier lives. But is that always the case?
Monday 21 May 2018 – ‘Dying Matters’
Talking about dying makes it more likely that you or your loved one will die as you might have wished, and it will make it easier for your loved ones if they know you have had a ‘good death’.
But what happens in hospitals at the end of life, what should we expect as patients or carers, and what can we do now to have a ‘good death’?
Dr John Speakman, Consultant in Palliative Medicine at UHB, and End of Life Clinical Nurse Specialist, Fiona Dakin, look at why dying matters and the decisions we can make now when it comes to the end of our lives.
