Please join us on Saturday, October 22nd for our final talk of the season, presented by Nicole Knibb.
FUTURE CARE, THE INTEGRATION OF ART AND MEDICINE
The Art of Seeing™ is a visual art-based visual literacy program held at the McMaster Museum of Art and in partnership with McMaster University’s Department of Family Medicine. Since 2010, they have welcomed Family Medicine residents to the Museum to learn to look at art through formal analysis and interpretation, combined with art-making, along with reflective and descriptive narrative writing. Using art as a basis for learning to look with greater accuracy can also build skills of empathy and awareness of ourselves and others. Research has also found that participants have an improved sense of well-being and reduced stress, a more positive outlook on patient care, and rekindled passion for both their professional work and also personal interests put aside to study medicine. The Art of Seeing ™ reflects the engagement and responsiveness to the transformation of Canadian health humanities education. Nicole will discuss the evolution of the program so far, reflections from residents who have taken the program, and the works of art that they have used from the McMaster Museum of Art’s world renowned art collection.
