This half day workshop is based around findings from a recent Wellcome Trust funded research project that explored the potential impact of educational comics on patients and relatives of people with a range of health conditions.
Through interviews with patients and relatives, the research explored how, and to what extent, educational comics can provide support in dealing with feelings and attitudes associated with health conditions, for example, fears and anxieties, social interactions and relationships.

In this workshop, we will discuss the findings of the research and the implications for practice, as well as exploring ways to work with health information comics in information services/libraries and healthcare settings.
Venue: Manchester, 17th September 2015, 1.00-4.00pm (refreshments/informal discussion from noon)
