Hello everyone. It's been great meeting all of you. I learnt a great deal from the presentations and was really glad to meet more people working in the Medical/Health Humanities. A couple of people asked me to send my presentation, so I'm uploading the PDF here, and will include the PPP in a different link as it doesn't seem I could upload both in one go. Thank you for a great couple of days. Faten
Just had to share that Andy Slavitt, the Acting Administrator of CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services--the heavyweight champion of US payer policy) liked my tweet about #medhum. I'm not saying that this constitutes the official position of the United States government on medical humanities or anything, but I see no reason not to jump to that conclusion...
Hi everybody, You will find attached the text of my brief presentation at the final roundtable of the 2016 CHCI Medical Humanities Summer Institute (I also added the links to the websites I mentioned). Thank you so much for these two days of inspiring talks and enriching conversations! All best, Daniele
We are establishing a research network at UWA, Perth, and would love to be more "connected". For further information please contact Yasmin Haskell.
Lineages of language and the diagnosis of asthma Gopalakrishnan Netuveli, Brian Hurwitz, Aziz Sheikh.
Asthma, wheeze and cough are words with differing histories, etymologies and meanings. Yet their medical usage today is clustered around the diagnosis and management of a single disease. Hitherto, asthma has been a clinical diagnosis but wheeze, cough and asthma now are key terms in cross-cultural questionnaire surveys. The medical meanings of these terms contrast with meanings revealed by the non-medical usage of all three terms, which are highly figurative.
