A new Aberdeen uni masterclass series honouring the memory of a 16-year-old boy looks to celebrate the professional relationship between health care professionals.
Robert Gordon University is welcoming students, staff, alumni and the wider public to the launch of a new series of masterclasses.
The James Stewart Collaboration Masterclass Series has been created in the memory of a north-east youngster.
He was inspired to follow a career in healthcare because of the compassion and dedication of the professionals caring for him after he was diagnosed with bone cancer.
James, 16, passed away in March 2016 and his family has welcomed the university’s initiative.
Laura Chalmers, senior lecturer in the School of Health Sciences and RGU’s interprofessional learning academic lead, said: “The initial focus of this new series will be on health and I cannot overstate how honoured we are that James Stewart’s family will be at the first session. Interprofessional working is relevant and essential in almost all professions and this series will celebrate the principles of teamwork that we place such an importance on at RGU.”
The first session takes place on November 7 at the Sir Ian Wood Building at 1.30pm.
