Managing Infrastructure: what can we learn from the medical experience of trauma?

Managing Infrastructure: what can we learn from the medical experience of trauma?

The SHOCK project invites anyone with experience of working in infrastructure strategy and practice to attend this workshop.

This workshop looks at the experiences of A&E staff in dealing with trauma and unpicks the processes and practices discussed by the individuals from both their everyday and one-off experiences. We will explore a story of infrastructure shock and reflect on this based on the understanding constructed from the medical cases. We will ask you to share your own stories of ‘shock’ to help draw out learning from these different contexts.

The workshop is free to attend and travel expenses can be covered.

When: Monday 26 November, 1-5pm

Where: Bloomsbury Suite, Friends House, 173 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ
