How can creative methods put communities at the centre of redesigning end of life care?

Professor Merryn Gott from the Te Arai Research Group at University of Auckland provided some excellent examples of the power of creative and participatory methods in making visible, often marginalised, voices. She argued that making those voices visible also creates the context for disruptive, but critical and courageous, conversations to occur. 
Professor Merryn Gott directs the bicultural Te Arai Palliative Care and End of Life Research Group, based at the School of Nursing, University of Auckland. The group draw on a range of participatory creative methods to explore ways to optimise palliative and end of life care, with a particular focus on equity.
