A Model Patient

What does it feel like from the patient perspective? A Model Patient involved patients and staff at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in an interactive arts process in collaboration with Culture Liverpool to explore different experiences of renal care from the perspective of patient, nurse and consultant.

“Twenty patients, eighteen nurses, doctors and others contemplated the relationship between patient and medic.  This fragment of their contribution begins to explore the complex nature of care, of illness and its management; and ultimately a patient’s relationship to life and death.” Mark Storor

“Each day is a new day. Each day on dialysis is a day to do better, try harder, learn more, fight, and never forget that it is a privilege to touch another human being”.  patient
