These comic strips are by Muna Al-Jawad who is a Consultant in Elderly Medicine and Clincal Lead for Dementia Care.
I am a geriatrician. I use comics as a form of practitioner research- to think about my practice and get under the surface of the things I might otherwise take for granted. I also use comics with students and other healthcare staff. I believe that being a healthcare practitioner is difficult. We all want to do the right thing for our patients but this is not possible unless we find ways to support staff to survive, flourish and be creative.
