Research project - Conferring dignity in law and health care

The HUSH Foundation is a partner on an Australian Research Council grant entitled Conferring dignity in law and health care (DP190100734). This project is led by Linda Barclay at Monash University, in partnership with HUSH and academics at Monash University, Macquarie University, King's College London and Tulane University. Over $240,000 has been awarded.

 

This project aims to develop a new and more inclusive conception of dignity. The expected outcome is a new understanding of the importance of dignity in human rights law and in health care services, with an aim to provide concrete guidance for health and aged care services on how they can promote the dignity of all of their clients.  The Hush Foundation will partner will Linda Barclay to develop workshops and educational material on the theme of upholding the dignity of all people in hospital and residential care.
