Challenging Disbelief and Disregard in the Lives of People living with Chronic Illness is a research project funded by BA/Leverhulme to look at the Experiences of People living with Chronic Illness and Energy Limiting Conditions (ELCs). It is a collaboration between Chronic Illness Inclusion, an organisation of people living with energy limiting chronic illnesses, the University of Liverpool and Liverpool Hope University.

This webinar shares resources based on our research. They include:

A research report based on original data collected by Chronic Illness Inclusion. This demonstrates the barriers to care experienced by women with ELCs
A series of briefing papers highlighting key themes and actions needed to improve care for people with ELCs
A short animation by Stacy Bias of and Ell Rose of
We will also launch a new project with opportunities for people with ELC/ELCI to get involved
