Publication date

This report describes the development, piloting and evaluation of a two-to-three hour training exercise that uses storytelling to reflect upon the culture of care in animal research establishments. It builds on the training resources originally developed in Phase I of the Care-full Stories project (Greenhough and Mazhary 2021). The project uses fictionalised prompts (storytelling) as a training resource to encourage participants to share their own stories of working in animal research. Sharing stories facilitates connections and the development of a shared culture of care across different communities within an animal research facility.
