Comment by Nils FIetje on CHCI Medical Humanities Institute (University College London) | 25 Jul 2016
At the summer 2016 Summer Institute I mentioned to you all that the March 2017 issue of WHO Europe's Public Health Panorama journal would focus on Culture and Health. No doubt the topic will be very relevant to many medical humanities scholars. The journal is published bilingually, in Russian and English, and has excellent circulation among Ministries of Health across the 53 WHO European Region Member States. From the Cfp: Culture and health Experiences of health are strongly influenced by their cultural contexts. Culture influences health outcomes by affecting the choices that people make; the beliefs and attitudes of policy-makers, health care professionals and members of the public; and the ways in which health systems operate. Exploring CCH requires a whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach, such as the one outlined in Health 2020. It means empowering people to find their own meanings of disease and health and creating more people-centred, culturally grounded health systems. A CCH approach also focuses on the role of culture in making communities resilient to health challenges, recognizing and engaging with culture as a potentially positive resource for well-being and exploring the extent to which case studies of cultural resilience can be translated elsewhere in the European Region. Last but not least, a CCH focus should also enable more holistic and nuanced health and well-being reporting that takes into account the subjective and diverse perspectives at the individual, community and national levels. The deadline for submission is 29 September.

All best, Nils

So sorry for the delay in posting this to the site; I have been in transit and just received my credentials to log in. Here are the comments from the conference: The Medical Humanities represent the work and presence of a community of scholars engaging in true interdisciplinary dialogue between those in classical humanities, ethicists, medical professionals, and translational researchers. The Medical Humanities and the study of ethics, however defined, offers us the best path forward in the quest for mercy and the ethical imperative to promote the advancement of medicine while resisting unbridled biological reductionism and the economic and social challenges that threaten to limit our role as caregivers. The role of the medical humanities and bioethics is political and practical, aesthetic and ethical. Its impact is intensely personal and pervasively public. Its strength draws on a foundation of keen observation and classic scholarship. Its study encourages hard won hubris season by personal humility and wisdom. It is a lifelong challenge to master the art of generous listening and informed critical thinking to help guide us into a future of the healing arts as a truly integrative and collaborative endeavor that is sustainable in the service of living deliberately. All the best. Dan Hall-Flavin
