Art of Medicine, Love of Humanity

Wherever the art of medicine is loved - there is also a love of humanity. (Hippocrates)


How can we make healthcare a more humanising experience? What does it mean 'to humanise'? How might we draw on ideas from the arts, humanities and social sciences to make sense of this nebulous term? Does it make sense to foreground the human in these contemporary posthuman times? In this podcast series we talk to activists, researchers and practitioners to find out how they understand and respond to these challenging questions.
