As Faculty, we are called upon more and more to use narrative approaches and reflective writing in our teaching. The use of narrative medicine and reflective writing has found its way into many healthcare curricula as an important tool to enhance self awareness and reflective capacity. This workshop will explore how developing skills in narrative competence in the clinical setting can increase our effectiveness as both clinicians and educators.

Art of Seeing - 2:00 to 3:55 p.m.

Cat's Cradle and the Clinical Trial: The Humanity of Medicine and the Humanities in Medicine

Talk abstract: We are experiencing an existential crisis in medicine. A crisis of meaning manifests as physician discomfort with evidence-based medicine, caregiver burnout, and clinician ambivalence over empathy for the patient and the self.  In this talk, we return to the social and historical origins of medicine to make visible three truths about the metaphysics of healing and the relationship of the physician to society.  A clue is to be found in the history of EBM at McMaster University and the work of David Sackett, who drew ideas from the novel Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.  Medicine touches the foundation of the human; the humanities offer a way of returning to this basic reality, of seeing ourselves and the meaning of our medical practice.
