Dave’s story

11 Apr 2017 | Patient Deterioration

Dave Churchman and his wife Diane share their story of life for Dave after his diagnosis of cancer.

Dave was literally up a ladder striping the wallpaper at home when he realised he was feeling very unwell. The backdrop of the stripped back wall in this video is a symbol of a life interrupted.

Dave and his wife share their experiences about their interactions with their GP and the hospital after Dave’s diagnosis.  It is about communication, advance care planning and the language used in patient care.
