Nursing: Improving Communications Through the Arts

The Conversation

Health care delivery is especially complicated and requires a balance between the science of medicine and the art of care. In today’s show we will be talking to our guest about her work using art to teach and improve observational skills with both nursing students and practicing nurses. Can the arts improve how our nurses communicate with their patients allowing them to provide more compassionate and effective medical care to patients? Additionally, we will explore her work in using artwork to facilitate conversations focused on diversity and equity. Join us as we explore the research behind these new ideas.
