Biography

Having trained as an occupational therapist and completed a PhD in psychology I am interested in the wellbeing of staff and service users in health and social care in general and acquired physical disability and rehabilitation in particular. My research focus is Humanising practice. This is based on existential understandings from lifeworld approaches and focuses on what make us feel human. Humanising practices are those that incorporate fully human knowing and support a sense of connection and wellbeing.

This approach is supported by working practices which encourage connection to personal experience and research approaches which privilege subjective experience and knowing; such as phenomenology, narrative, auto-ethnography, embodied knowing and arts–based approaches.

Research

I have just completed two studies; The HeART of stroke study -a feasbility study of an Arts and Health intervention for people after they have a stroke. More information about this project can be found at https://research.bournemouth.ac.uk/2015/08/heart-of-stroke-study/ The findings have supported future work towards a larger multicentre trial The other study Involved working with staff and patients to humanise stroke services, applying a deep philosophical theory to practice . The project was very sucessful and we are devleoping practice locally. We are also planning future research in this area Both of these studies are linked to my interest in Lifeworld led services. In these services key subjective existential aspects related to being human are considered in relation to both service users and providers with an aim of enhancing health and wellbeing..

We have a strong and growing Humanisation Special Interest Group - more information about humanisation and the group can be found at http://research.bournemouth.ac.uk/2013/11/about-humanising-health-and-social-care-at-bu/

If you are interested in carrying out research, educational or practice developments in the area of Lifeworld led services and explore what makes people feel human within health , social care and other work contexts –please get in touch with me at cehill@bournemouth.ac.uk
