description:

Humanistic medicine is a growing trend as more medical professionals integrate the arts into their practice to improve communication with their patients and build better relationships. Creative Arts in Humane Medicine is a resource for medical educators, practitioners, and students interested in effectively using the arts in medical education and practice to foster a more caring, empathic approach. Featuring leaders and innovators in the field of humanistic medicine, this collection contains the latest research and real-life examples of the arts in action in both clinical and classroom settings.

Topics include teaching empathy through role play, using stories in the paediatric interview, applying the visual arts in medical and dental education, and exploring the human experience of illness through narrative and reflection.
