Editorial Reviews

Creative Arts in Humane Medicine takes us on a fascinating journey to meet the educators, clinicians, support workers and artists who apply arts-based methods in innovative ways to enhance patient care, reflexivity in learners, and a sense of community and well-being in practitioners. The book stands out with an emphasis on multiple media (theater, music, visual and digital imagery, literature, and reflective writing), as well as the inclusion of international and interprofessional perspectives.
