Grace Under Pressure

Date: 21 Mar 2021

Health professionals are with us when we’re born, and they’re with us when we die.

They devote their lives to caring for us, but how do we care for them?

Can a doctor or nurse give a patient the best possible care if he or she hasn’t slept for days?

What if they also being bullied or sexually harassed at work?

What if they complain about having to work excessive hours, but are told to stop whinging and suck it up?

How do they cope with the pressure?

Verbatim theatre makers David Williams and Paul Dwyer, in collaboration with the Sydney Arts and Health Collective, have developed Grace Under Pressure from interviews with interns, medical and nursing students, as well as senior allied health professionals and representatives from the specialist colleges and peak bodies.
