8:00 AM—8:15 AM Bring in the Artist Stat! A New Model for Patient Care
Julia Langley will discuss new research showing that the inclusion of artists as medical team members opens up a new channel for communication between patients and their care teams allowing for highly personalized care to be delivered. In addition, the arts access the creative and whole aspects of patients, a critically important part of delivering high quality, interdisciplinary care.
1. Learn to assess what types of artist encounters are beneficial to both patients and to their care teams.
