The History of Pain

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 11th Oct 2017

Pain is often seen as universal and timeless, but how have people’s understandings of pain changed over time? Did the invention of more effective analgesics and anaesthetics really revolutionise medical practices and human relationships to suffering? 

Pain forces sufferers to ‘pay attention’ to their bodies. The way people-in-pain communicate their suffering has a profound effect on the type and quality of care they receive.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Cost: Free of Charge
