LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR: DANCE IN HOSPITAL

Monday 15 October: 4:30pm - 5:30pm

Addenbrooke's Board Room, Hills Road, CB2 0QQ

Since 2016, Cambridge University Hospitals has run the UK's first in-patient dance programme offering seven sessions each week on six different wards: elderly care, diabetes and endocrinology, neuro-rehabilitation, stroke rehabilitation and renal Bedside sessions can also be offered to patients who are unable to attend the group sessions for clinical reasons. Each session lasts up to one hour and is entirely shaped around and in response to the patients who attend.

All patients are welcome to participate regardless of their mobility, many will be seated, some will be very limited in their movement, many will have dementia but no distinction will be made between their contribution and that of every other participant. An exciting aspect of the dance programme is to encourage participants to initiate movement – allowing patients to take the lead.

This talk will bring together researchers, dancers and nurses to discuss the findings from this ground-breaking project.
