In my recent research project, I interviewed 14 long-term cancer survivors on being post cancer.

For most people the experience of illness uproots the existential and moral foundation they stand on. But if the illness narrative can be understood as a moral occasion for the care of the self, cancer rehabilitation can greatly benefit from philosophical practice. In a recent research project I explored this new approach to rehabilitation by carry...

We report the experiences from the first two years of a paediatric ethical committee at Rigshospitalet. The committee consists of five clinicians (nurses and doctors) and five non-clinicians.
