"The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient with the disease"
Sir William Osler
The Oxford Health Experiences Institute
HEXI is a unique, interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to the understanding of experiences of health, illness and healthcare, using this understanding to transform care through influencing policy, practice and education.
The Institute is a joint initiative between the University's Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and Green Templeton College. It is founded on relationships between key research groups within the University, bringing together different research approaches. The Health Experiences Research Group (HERG) and the Health Services Research Group (HSRU) are the core of this collaboration.
