Damnum versus Quaestus: images of healing and learning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Not only is bioethics fundamental to determining or guiding how we live and die, its role as the key interconnecting strand between various disciplines, the public, and decision makers is unique. This article details a collection of artworks, entitled “Damnum versus Quaestus” (loss versus gain). They are informed by the lived experience of being with someone (described here as “the patient”) as they live through the process of dying.
