In its fusion of essays and artwork, Art+Medicine Collaborative Practice helps readers understand the lived realities of individuals with head and neck cancer. Featuring compelling original art from Ingrid Bachmann, Sean Caulfield, Jude Griebel, Jill Ho-You, Heather Huston, and Brad Necyk, this collaborative interdisciplinary exploration draws together the voices of patients, health care practitioners, and researchers with artists’ empathic visualizations to offer a more holistic—more human—understanding of cancer treatment and its aftermath. Art+Medicine Collaborative Practice is an important book for scholars, practitioners, and students in health professions and medical humanities, as well as artists, arts-based researchers, and those interested in the areas of health and visual communication and knowledge translation.
