Thomas Cousins and Michelle Pentecost have recently published a second report on the Brocher Foundation workshop “The Humanization of Health Sciences through Innovation in Health Professions Education” held in Hermance, Switzerland May 18-20, 2016.

In this report, they draw out four points of reflection:

  1. ‘Humanising the health sciences’: old wine in new bottles?
  2. A critical humanization?
  3. Humanising health sciences in the North and the South
  4. Notions of humanity: conflict medicine and decolonization

The report is published on Somatosphere“A collaborative website covering the intersections of medical anthropology, science and technology studies, cultural psychiatry, psychology and bioethics.”
