Behind the Mask: Enduring Pain in Haematology
Wednesday 3 April, 10:45-12:15

This session is unique to BSH 2019 and includes patients living with sickle cell disease and haemophilia arthropathy. Visual artist Deborah Padfield will also be sharing her work, which focuses on chronic pain. The session will be joined by an experienced clinical psychologist and a retired haematology consultant who both have expertise in managing pain. Discussion will include the limitations of language in communicating pain and the impact of pain-focused clinical consultations on both patients and clinicians. We will also invite reflection and questions from the floor during this special session.
