Illness as transformative experience

Life of Breath PI Havi Carel, Ian James Kidd (University of Nottingham) and Richard Pettigrew (University of Bristol) have a paper entitled ‘Illness as transformative experience‘ in the most recent issue of The Lancet. They argue, among other things, that the transformative nature of illness is under-appreciated and should be included (along with the notion of adapting to change) in discussions with patients diagnosed with disability or long-term illness.
