Anthropology lecturer to present research at 2015 Caring Matters Conference

Senior lecturer in anthropology, Jason Danely, will be running a workshop about his research on family-provisioned care in Japan at the Caring Matters Conference.

There are an estimated 6.5 million unpaid carers in the UK, and Jason's research is part of a larger project comparing care in the UK and Japan. In particular, his work highlights the influence of culture on the kinds of stress and resilience experienced by family caring for older adults.

The conference will be held on Friday 20 November, to coincide with National Carer's Rights Day, at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford and is organized by Carers Oxfordshire.

Other guest speakers include; Jen Kenward, Head of Patient Experience – Community, Primary and Integrated Care Nursing Directorate (NHS England), Professor Graham Stokes (Global Director of Dementia Care at BUPA), Paul Mayhew-Archer (British Writer, producer and Script Editor for the BBC), Ruth Patil (Carers Worldwide), Andrew Smith MP and Paul Cann, Chief Executive of Age UK Oxfordshire and Action for Carers Oxfordshire.

The event is free for carers. Anyone interested in attending should contact Carers Oxfordshire on carersinfo@carersoxfordshire.org.uk
