Editorial Reviews

Allan D. Peterkin MD -- Head
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.
Michael Gordon MD
McLean's book should be a must read for those responsible for medical education...so that in the end the human connection between healers and those they heal is enhanced.
Sue MacRae -- Registered Nurse
Creative Arts in Humane Medicine is a graceful and important book that offers a groundbreaking, inspiriting engagement with issues such as empathy, empowerment, ethics, and evidence, explored by a rich cast of inter-professional authors...A must read for academics, researchers, clinicians, and students interested in creative healing arts, narrative health, and humane medicine.
Martin Donohoe
Cheryl McLean's Creative Arts in Humane Medicine is a fascinating collection of essays that evocatively illustrates the importance of literature, music, photography, and art in facilitating self-care and awareness among health care providers, training empathetic physicians, and improving patient care.
