A CCME pre-conference

Winnipeg, April 28-29, 2017

Rationale/Background

Creating Space (CS) is an annual meeting exploring the evolving use of arts, humanities and social sciences (AHSS) in healthcare education. Over the last six years, CS has become an annual summit where scholars, artists and practitioners gather to discuss how to cultivate the best and most humanistic characteristics of health care professionals.   A recent trend in medical education is the strong emphasis on Professionalism.  This has occasionally been misinterpreted as a call to leave one’s personhood and subjective experience at the door.   This meeting will focus on how the AHSS methods and inquiry can be used to achieve greater personal self-awareness and reflexivity on the part of the practitioner, with a view to the development of greater insight into and access to one’s personhood  and humanity in both the clinical and intraprofessional encounter.

Instructional Methods

Recognizing the emerging role of AHSS approaches and interdisciplinary scholarship, CSVII will provide an inclusive forum attending to the challenges and opportunities of incorporating these into health professions education. The proposed one-and-a-half day program will highlight keynote addresses, short papers, panel presentations and poster sessions. Participatory workshops, performance sessions and networking opportunities will complement attendees’ experience.

Target Audience

CSVII seeks to include the ever-growing number of scholars, educators, artists and practitioners from multiple disciplines whose work at the intersections of AHSS and clinical spheres inspires health professions education in Canada and abroad. Student participation from AHSS disciplines and health professions is strongly encouraged.   In recognition of Manitoba’s rich history of Indigenous artistic achievement, a significant portion of time will be dedicated to the Indigenous narrative.

Three Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss multiple conceptual frameworks informing different forms of scholarship employed in AHSS approaches to health professions education.
  1. Engage academics, health care practitioners, and artists to explore models of expressing and understanding  personal narratives in the context of medical/clinical training.
  1. Include AHSS techniques, best practices  and worldviews in health professions education to promote further collaboration and program development with the view that exploration of one’s personal narratives in the context of medical/clinical training may have benefits to patient care and to the mental health and resilience of  health professionals .
