Podcast: Behind the Health Statistic
Behind the Health Statistic is an educational podcast that explores the human and personal perspectives of health and illness.
In a world where our media is saturated with health data and statistics, the podcast aims to take the listeners attention away from the numbers and on to the people. The podcast has been produced by a team of Nursing Academics led by Ricky Hellyar, a Lecturer in Adult Nursing.
The podcast seeks to explore the human and personal perspectives of health and illness. We often hear about statistics and numbers in health but we wanted students and the public to hear the personal stories and lived experience with regards to health issues.
