Event date: Wednesday, 1 March 2017 at 6.00 PM

As life expectancy continues to rise in the UK, more and more of us will need care, or become carers ourselves. Michelle Brown, Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at the University of Derby’s new Chesterfield Campus, will discuss the role of carers in today’s society. Michelle will also address the burden of caring, how to support carers and the need for self-compassion among carers. 

Taking an innovative approach to this event, Michelle will be listening as much as talking, giving a platform to informal carers on whom more and more people rely as life expectancy continues to rise in the UK.

“It’s something I’m really passionate about. A lot of the evening will be about discussion – a chance for people to share their experiences and stories” says Michelle.
