Creating Space VII: Dreaming the Myth Onward: The Stories We Don't Always Tell (A CCME pre‑conference)

Posted by GHO Admin on October 5, 2016 in Events

Call for Papers: Deadline Dec. 31, 2016
Conference Dates: April 28 & 29, 2017
Location: Winnipeg, MB

Creating Space (CS) is an annual meeting exploring the evolving use of arts, humanities and social sciences (AHSS) in healthcare education. Over the last six years, CS has become an annual summit where scholars, artists and practitioners gather to discuss how to cultivate the best and most humanistic characteristics of health care professionals.   A recent trend in medical education is the strong emphasis on Professionalism.  This has occasionally been misinterpreted as a call to leave one’s personhood and subjective experience at the door.   This meeting will focus on how the AHSS methods and inquiry can be used to achieve greater personal self-awareness and reflexivity on the part of the practitioner, with a view to the development of greater insight into and access to one’s personhood  and humanity in both the clinical and intraprofessional encounter.
