Shame in medicine: The Lost Forest podcast

Run time: 11.00 – 22.30

What is shame? And how does it manifest in the medical world?

These are questions that The Nocturnists, a medical storytelling podcast, and Luna Dolezal from the Shame and Medicine Project at the University of Exeter have been asking. By tracking the stories of over 200 healthcare workers across the USA, UK, and beyond, they’ve produced “Shame in Medicine: The Lost Forest”, a podcast which gives voice to unspoken truths about medical culture.

Accompanied by stunning illustrations, you can pop on some headphones and select from a catalogue of episodes to learn about the connections between experiences of shame, and the wellness of clinicians and patients.
