Anatomy in a Post-Covid-19 World: Tracing a New Trajectory.

Anat Sci Educ 2021 Mar;14(2):148-153

Department of Anatomy, Division of Health Sciences, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.

In responding to Covid-19 anatomists have succeeded in adapting their teaching to online delivery. However, long-term reliance on this mode of teaching raises the prospect that transferring the whole of the learning environment to an impersonal digital world will lead to loss of anatomy's humanistic side. In looking to a future increasingly dependent upon digital input to teaching, a number of roadblocks are identified. Read More

Birds of a Feather? Genetic Counseling, Genetic Testing, and Humanism.

Robert Resta

Cold Spring Harb Perspect Med 2020 11 2;10(11). Epub 2020 Nov 2.

Swedish Cancer Institute, Swedish Medical Center, Seattle, Washington 98104, USA.

Humanism is a philosophy that emphasizes rational, scientific, and empiric analysis of the world we live in to improve the physical, social, and psychological life of humanity. Although individual genetic counselors may or may not identify as humanists, genetic counseling and genetic testing are primarily humanistic endeavors because they are situated in the context of humanistic medicine in the westernized world. Humanistic goals are also implicit and explicit in the profession and practice of genetic counselors. Read More

Prolegomena to a True Integrative Medical Paradigm.

Altern Ther Health Med 2019 Mar;25(2)

When a paradigm starts to show signs of failure to cope with significant questions in any basic/applied branch of human knowledge, there come on the scene those who have perused the related literature enough to either answer those major questions according to the established paradigm or proffer a (wholly) new way of looking at things. In the latter case, the history of science tells us, a paradigm shift takes place. Modern medicine cannot be proven to be totally disconnected from its traditional roots. Read More

The patient-physician relationship. Teaching the human dimensions of care in clinical settings.

JAMA 2001 Sep;286(9):1067-74

Division of General Medicine, Department of Medicine, Emory University School of Medicine, 1525 Clifton Rd, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA.

Despite repeated calls to emphasize the humanistic dimensions of care during medical education, these are few known techniques for effective teaching of humanism. We describe the barriers that inhibit humanistic teaching and suggest pragmatic teaching methods to overcome such barriers and teach humanistic care in clinical settings. We began by asking participants at a conference on patient-physician communications sponsored by the American Academy on Physician and Patient in June 1998, "What can we do in the patient's presence to improve and teach the human dimensions of care? Please provide one or more examples of approaches you found to be effective. Read More

Why history is important for thoracic surgeons.

E W Wilkins

Chest Surg Clin N Am 2000 Feb;10(1):1-7, vii

Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

There are numerous examples of lessons to be learned from acquaintance with surgical history. Notwithstanding these considerations--the admonition to read and think about history, the lessons learned from technical misadventures, and the need to add humanistic practices to our scientific endeavors--the real reward from our study of medical history lies in the pure job of being educated in one more way. This implies understanding our contemporary position in the unrolling course of medical history: from remote history through the enlightenment after the reawakening from the dark ages, to the surgical spurt in the latter half of the nineteenth century, and onward through the dramatic advances of our passing millennium.
