There is great value in listening to patient narratives and reflecting upon what is communicated through these stories about health, illness, suffering, and recovery. In this course, students will explore written forms of patient narratives, as well as multimedia presentations, movies, music, song, and visual arts to improve their understanding of patient experiences. Students will learn how to enhance their own listening, self reflection, and communication skills, and, in the process, they will develop narrative competencies that emphasize empathy, compassion, and other effective components of quality care. The course will explore ways in which a study of the medical humanities contributes to a deeper understanding of personal and social features that affect the quality of patient care. Elective only. Nova Southeastern also runs an Ethics and Humanities longitudinal thread (but few details) and produces be Still: A Journal of the Medical Humanities. For more information about the latter initiative, see This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth. You can find more information about the project at Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
