UK RCN Foundation - In Conversation with Christie Watson

11 Nov 2020 19:30 - 20:30



Join bestselling author, Christie Watson, for a fascinating webinar in conversation with Foundation Director, Deepa Korea, as she answers your questions and shares her own experiences of the nursing profession, having been a registered nurse for twenty years.

Christie’s first novel, The Language of Kindness, was a number one Sunday Times bestseller and is currently being adapted for theatre and television. She is Professor of Medical and health Humanities at the University of East Anglia and Patron of the RCN Foundation. Her latest book, The Courage to Care, reveals the remarkable extent of nurses’ work and how we benefit from their expertise in hospitals and beyond; in our schools, on our streets, in prisons, hospices and care homes.

You will have the opportunity to put forward your own questions to Christie both ahead of and during the virtual event as she talks about the experience of writing The Courage to Care, her own nursing career, and why nursing has never been more important than it is today.

We welcome questions in advance of the webinar. Please send in your question to
