Description:

If health care is an art and a science, what can the humanities teach us about our practice, our patients, and ourselves? The humanities ask fundamental questions about what it means to be human, and the meaning of life and death. The exploration of these questions requires going beyond traditional scientific understandings of health and into the domain of disciplines such as history, philosophy, the arts, the social sciences, and ethics.

At the centre of clinical practice are relationships between professionals and patients. The humanities can help professionals to better understand their patients’ perspectives, experiences, and life contexts. They also enable the analysis of broader contexts related to history, culture, and the social structure. These disciplines can also enable health professionals to examine their own experiences, roles, and well-being within health systems.

The course will focus on the development of essential qualities for health professionals including compassion, respect, honesty, justice, critical inquiry, and reflection.

 

By the end of this workshop you will be able to

  • Develop skills related to critical and creative thinking, inquiry, and reflection.
  • Explore how different ways of knowing shape health practice.
  • Examine how cultural beliefs and values influence our understanding of and approaches to health.
  • Consider patient perspectives and narratives as tools for fostering better relationships.
  • Explore the role of health professionals in modern society as a product of history, culture, and the social structure.

Log in information will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.



Facilitators:  Susan Wingert and guest speaker Dr. Rachel Matlow
