About this event

Data for this session come from a corpus of video-recordings collected as part of the VERDIS-AHP project, which aims to examine planning talk, decision-making and aspects of touch and gesture in hospice-based therapy sessions. I will be showing a short extract from one of these therapy sessions which involve allied health professionals (physiotherapists and/or occupational therapists), their patients and any companions present. Analysis is in the early stages and observations about any aspect of the data would be very welcome.
