Art-Medicine Collaborative Practice

Transforming the Experience of Head and Neck Cancer

Through a fusion of personal experience and art, the contributors help us understand the lived realities of individuals with head and neck cancer. Featuring original art from Ingrid Bachmann, Sean Caulfield, Jude Griebel, Jill Ho-You, Heather Huston, and Bradley Necyk, this collaborative, interdisciplinary exploration draws together the voices of patients, health care practitioners, researchers, and artists to offer a more holistic—more human—understanding of cancer treatment and its aftermath. Art–Medicine Collaborative Practice will resonate with people with head or neck cancer as well as medical practitioners who aid in their healing process. It is an important book for all those in the 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.
