Poetry at Sinai Health: Upcoming events for April/Poetry Month

Poetry at Sinai Health — 2 Events in April,

National Poetry Month A Writing and Reflection Workshop for Residents, MD Educators and Practitioners

with Ronna Bloom, Sinai Health’s Poet-In-Residence:

Have You Seen the Patient? 

Using reflective writing as a platform, explore what it is to “see” your patient, as a care provider, team member, and as a human being. Have a conversation with yourself and each other about the rich nature of patient-centred collaborative work.

April 10, 2019, 6pm-8pm
Mount Sinai Hospital, OT Room 941

Ronna Bloom is the author of six books of poetry. Her most recent book, The More, (Pedlar Press, 2017) was longlisted for the 2018 City of Toronto Book Award. Ronna is currently Poet in Community at the University of Toronto and Poet in Residence at Sinai Health. www.ronnabloom.com

There is no fee for participation in each workshop, but a firm commitment once registered is expected. Please advise well in advance if you’re unable to attend, as these workshops generally have a wait-list. Inter-professional practitioners are welcome, space permitting.
