37: Survival of the Kindest: Naheed Dosani – Homelessness, Palliative Medicine, and Trauma Informed Care

Transcript available here

This week on the podcast Julian talks to Palliative Care Doctor, and health visionary Naheed Dosani.

Having experienced the death of one of his patient’s who was homeless early on in his medical career he took a small break to consider deeply what he wanted to do in medicine. He then moved into Palliative care, specifically looking at how we are able to administer palliative care to the homeless community.

In the conversation Naheed draws parallels between the treatment of racialised people in medicine and the treatment of homeless people. How medicine favours a euro-centric understanding of community which overlooks how communities can be built in ways that are unrecognised by healthcare, governments and many organisations.
