Follow Up Discussion: Medical Consent

  • The Platform Cafe 1178 Bushwick Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11221 United States (map)

As a follow up to our talk at May Day Space about 'Consent in a Medical Setting,' we have invited a friend, colleague, and nurse midwife, Nuranisa Rae, to join us. Nuranisa has offered to collaborate with us on a project. She would like to offer free pap smears for a day long event in which we will all work together to design an environment and care plan that reflects what we would like to see, in an ideal world. We will decide how to invite people, how people should be greeted on arrival, what kind of space this should be in, what literature and information should be available to take away etc. 

We are sending this Ted Talk to watch in preparation to both highlight why stressors within the medical system affect physical health and to provide one example of a model that has been addressing this: The JJ Way created by midwife Jennie Joseph.
