Join poets, nurses and researchers to explore young people’s experiences of nursing care, past and present.

Join us in the beautiful Cowdray Hall at the Royal College of Nursing for a very special night of poetry and conversation. Hear the first performance of a new work by spoken word artist (and nurse) Molly Case, inspired by research on children and young people’s experiences of cancer and sickle cell disease since 1945; join researchers and nurses in discussion about childhood illness and care, past and present; and take in a brand-new exhibition on the history of children’s nursing.

Doors will open at 5.30pm and the event will start at 6pm.

The virtual event starts at 6pm. You will still need to book a ticket to receive the link: choose the “Online” ticket option.
