• To consider how and why we might share our own experiences when supporting others
• To take learning from peer support approaches around using lived experience in a supportive role
• To discuss the complexities involved in sharing personal experiences including the altered boundaries this may invite
• To reflect on the choices we make in relation to disclosure, and consider how these might impact on individuals around us
• To discuss the importance of language and the role this plays in shaping our stories
• To establish personal ‘golden rules’ for how, when and why we choose to share personal experiences
Title: The Healthcare System in Singapore
Date: Thursday, 9th March 2017
Time: 11.30am – 12.30pm

Abstract: Abstract: Singapore is a densely populated island nation. Taking care of the physical and mental health needs of its population has its own unique set of challenges and difficulties. These include a rapidly ageing population, the increasing social isolation of the elderly in high-rise housing, as well as the juggling of limited financial and human resources. Policy makers and healthcare providers have endeavoured to make the Singapore healthcare system as efficient as possible whilst maintaining a high standard of care. This lecture aims to give a brief look at the ever evolving healthcare system in this city state.
