  • how the written word can help patients, practitioners, families and the general public understand states of health, experiences of acute/chronic disease, disability and ageing.
  • how a study of historical events can inform our understanding of present health issues and guide us about future clinical practice and policy.
  • how can the humanities assist practitioners in becoming more culturally sensitive particularly to displaced individuals, and in considering the impact on patients and clinicians of migrating into a different cultural environment.
