Need for a National Conversation on Pornography - Fergal Rooney, Senior Counselling Psychologist joins Pat Kenny TV3 in studio - 2 November 2011

Pat Kenny is joined by psychiatrist Patricia Casey and psychologist Fergal Rooney to discuss the issues faced by porn stars and users of pornography, and the need for a national conversation on pornography.

 

As a nation, we bet ten thousand euro every single minute. No new laws to regulate gambling have been passed here since the 1950s, and a 2013 bill shows no sign of movement in the Dáil. Dr Colin O’Gara joins Claire Byrne in studio

The importance of Introductions

#HelloMyNameIs

We in Saint John of God Hospital are proud to join the global #hellomynameis campaign.

The ‘Hello my name is…’ campaign was started by Kate Granger, a doctor and terminally ill cancer patient in the UK. Following her admission to hospital in August 2013, Kate noticed that very few of those treating her introduced themselves by name. It felt incredibly wrong that such a basic step in communication was missing. Kate then started the #Hellomynameis campaign on social media aiming to encourage and remind hospital staff of the importance of introducing themselves to patients.

A friendly introduction is much more than common courtesy. It is about making a human connection between one human being who is suffering and vulnerable, and another human being who wants to help.

#hellomynameis helps provide truly person-centred and compassionate care.

KateGranger

Sadly Kate Granger passed away 23rd July 2016 - RIP
