Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Teaching empathetic practice

Both nurses and actors need the ability to demonstrate empathy in their practice yet portraying and ‘feeling’ empathetic do not always tally. This project aimed to explore the effectiveness of interdisciplinary collaborative working in developing and delivering a novel workshop and inform teaching and learning practices. Pre-registration nursing and drama students from two universities took part in a participatory performance during a workshop exploring communication in palliative and end of life care for children and young people and students’ understanding of empathy. This paper presents an overview of the study and discusses the novel approach for interdisciplinary working it employed.
