Lisbeth Hockey Memorial Lecture 2022 - On the importance of being a patient: the experience of breast cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic
Speaker: Professor Sally Kendall, MBE, Ph.D., B.Sc. (Hons), RN, RHV, FQNI, MFPH, FiHV
In this lecture I will draw on my personal experience as a patient with breast cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic to explore questions that we need to consider in community nursing research, policy and practice. The concept of integrated care and how we can achieve a level of care that recognises the whole person, as a unique individual within a complex and uncertain health care environment will be addressed. From a person-centred and personalized experience I will aim to explore the importance of being a patient and what this means for self-hood and integration of the wounded self into a whole person.
From the perspective of the patient journey and the experience as data, arise research questions for community nursing that we continue to need to rigorously address.
The founder of ICCHNR, Dr Lisbeth Hockey, left us a legacy to continue to generate research questions, develop our knowledge and understanding of community health and the families and individuals who make up our rich and diverse communities. She was concerned with how we uncover our research questions and enquire deeply into nursing practice. The patient experience is at the heart of this enquiry.
Sally Kendall, MBE, Ph.D., B.Sc. (Hons), RN, RHV, FQNI, MFPH, FiHV, Professor of Community Nursing and Public Health, University of Kent, UK.
Sally is an NMC registered academic community nurse and health visitor, and her main research interest are in primary and community health care, especially research that seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of families and children in the community. Her current interests are focused on parenting and its impact on child health both in the UK and internationally. She is the Associate Investigator on a major NHMRC project in Australia concerned with the early parenting experiences of Aboriginal parents. She developed with colleagues the parenting self-efficacy measure, Topse (https://www.topse.org.uk/site/topse/), and use of the measure involves her in studies investigating the effect of psychological support for parents of children with complex health needs, the development of an ante-natal measure of parenting and the evaluation of an app for new parents. She is the UK Principal Investigator for the Becoming Breastfeeding Friendly Study in collaboration with Yale School of Public Health, working with Public Health England, Public Health Wales and Scotland Health. She is currently the co-Chief Investigator on the Health Behaviour of School Aged Children Survey for England (https://hbsc.org/) and a co-investigator on a programme of research related to the Healthy Child Programme for 0-5 year old children and health visiting with colleagues from UCL.
As the lead for research capacity in the NIHR ARC for Kent, Surrey and Sussex, she also has a great interest in mentorship and supporting the health care workforce to develop their clinical and academic careers as a route to bringing transformation to health care delivery and outcomes for patients and families.
She completed her PhD in 1991 at Kings College, London with her thesis entitled ‘Client Participation in the Health Visitor-Client interaction’. Her interest in the client/patient voice, the focus of this lecture, is therefore longstanding.
