As a nurse, Molly Case has witnessed countless moments of empathy, joy, grief, and fear, seeing first-hand the wide breadth of human experience.

In How To Treat People, she weaves together medical history, science and memoir to illustrate the oscillating rhythms of life and death. When her father is admitted into the high dependency unit where she works, Case’s professional and personal worlds collide, causing her to confront the ways patients and nurses experience illness.

Case will be discussing this fascinating and informed book that shows how, as an empathetic nurse, she not only alleviates a patient’s pain but becomes a part of it.

This event is sponsored by the NHS.
