CFS: Books to Bedside (Conference)

BOOKS TO BEDSIDE: Translational Work in the Medical Humanities

April 23-25, 2009 Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago

A common role of humanities in medicine has been to provide a creative outlet or a respite from the difficulties of medical practice. The applied medical humanities aims to build concrete skills essential to clinical practice.This conference will focus on application, investigating the purpose of humanities work as it translates to patient care. Through paired plenary sessions, breakout groups, and workshops, this conference will answer such questions as:
* What is the “bench work” of the medical humanities?
* What does it mean to bring books to bedside?
* Do the humanities have an intrinsic role in clinical thinking?
* How does humanities research translate into clinical practice?
* What is the relation of narrative theory to narrative medicine?
Submission of proposals for paper presentations, panels, or workshops is invited.
Email proposals, along with a one-page CV, to Catherine Belling c-belling@northwestern.edu  by December 15, 2008.
Queries in advance of submission are welcome.
For updates, see the conference website:

Sponsored by the Medical Humanities & Bioethics Program of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and the American Society for Bioethics + Humanities, and underwritten by the David and Julia Uihlein Charitable Foundation of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
