Epistemology, Ontology, What’s that got to do with…Social Work, Medicine, Nursing?

Health and social work professionals work at the frontiers of knowledge in health and welfare and yet their professional training programmes do not always dedicate time to questions of epistemology and ontology.  What impact does this have on their ability to deliver good care?
This speaker event will also include an audience discussion.   
Faculty staff, students, clinicians/practitioners and anyone else keen to discuss these ideas in an academic environment are welcome.
