Artful Medicine: Art’s Power to Enrich Patient Care | BrownX on edX | Course About Video



What do you see? What do you think the
physician is thinking? What is this making you feel? Believe it or not,
my work as a doctor has been very much
influenced by works of art just like this one. Here at Brown University,
we foster this kind of interdisciplinary learning. And during my time at Brown's
Warren Alpert Medical School, I've been fortunate
enough to partner with some profoundly inspiring
doctors, medical students, artists, and
educators to consider how art can inform
one of the biggest challenges in patient care– how can doctors best
treat patients as people? In this BrownX experience,
we'll explore practices to promote healing relationships
between the practitioner and the patient. No matter what your
profession, we all give and receive care at
different points in our lives. By looking at a variety
of works of art, we'll seek to understand
how art and the humanities can inform the
caregiving process and to find our
own meaning in art. I'm excited to
share my experiences in this subject with you. But I'm even more curious to
learn from your experiences and perspectives. My name is Fred Schiffman. I'm the Sigal Family Professor
of Humanistic Medicine at Brown University. Join me in exploring how
art can enrich patient care.
