Auckland Writers' Festival: Matters Medica

Auckland Writers' Festival: Matters Medica

What is it like to work in the medical profession where so much is often at stake? How do medics walk the tightrope between hypothesis and diagnosis and honour patient trust? And what place does creative writing play in managing the weight of expectation and responsibility? MedicsDavid Galler (Things That Matter), Glenn Colquhoun (The Art of Walking Upright), and physiotherapist Sue Wootton (Strip) talk about life at the often fragile edge, in conversation with Leanne Pooley.
