A short film highlighting the power of a person’s experience of advanced disease in a very unique way, exploring many issues for both the person and the nursing staff.

Film poster 11.17(HR for print)

The St Barnabas Education Team showed Debbie’s film to two groups of nurses during one of our teaching sessions at the hospice. The film tells the story of Debbie, who has advanced Parkinson’s disease, and was created with our Artist-in-Residence.

Both groups of nurses viewed the film with great interest and discussed the various issues it raised for the person with the illness and for themselves. These included, for example, discrimination against disability, assumptions and judgement making, managing expectations, ‘seeing the person beyond the disease’, the ability to be free and to make decisions, the meaning of spirituality, the power of music, medication issues and making some sense of the concept of ‘resilience’.

You can watch the film here:

Debbie’s story and film were also presented at the NAPCE (National Association of Palliative Care Educators) Conference in December 2017 in Leeds where it won the Frances Sheldon Poster Award in recognition of the best initiative to support the theme of the conference which was “Inclusivity in Palliative Care Education: Discerning or Discriminating”.
