Graphic Medicine

The Shame and Medicine Project and The Shame Conversation have been collaborating with Charlotte Wu on a project to produce graphic medicine resources to be used to teach medical learners about the impact of shame and other emotions in healthcare, medical learning and clinical experience. We have been working with the talented artists Hannah Berry and Hannah Mumby to produce graphic medicine work that explores shame in medical learner experience.  For more information about how to use the images as an educational resource to explore the experience of shame, please visit The Shame Conversation, take part in the ‘Shame Spiral’ graphic activity and contribute to the discussion.

We are continuing to commission comics from other artists, which will be used as teaching and curriculum resources. We aim to publish the comics as a collected works to be used as a text book in medical education.

This graphic medicine project has been funded by the Exeter-Duke Collaboration Fund (2020-2021) and an Enhanced Research Award from the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health (2021), University of Exeter.
