Annalisa Manca's insight:

This paper proposes that a particular philosophical approach, phenomenology, could prove useful for patients, giving them tools to reflect on and expand their understanding of their illness. I present a framework for a resource that could help patients to philosophically examine their illness, its impact on their life, and its meaning

Annalisa Manca's insight:

A very interesting project. I particularly like the use of movement and dance to improve body language awareness - I think this could have impact on emotional awareness as well, especially if dance s combined to yoga.

Smart Apps For Special Needs: 10 Apps for Teaching Emotions and Calming Skills

Smart Apps For Special Needs: 10 Apps for Teaching Emotions and Calming Skills | Emotions and empathy in Medical Education | Scoop.it

"My husband learned pretty early on in our marriage that telling me to "relax" when I was feeling stressed was not in his best interest. My response is always more favorable when he offers to help or even just listen. This came to mind when I read an article by behavior specialist, Jessica Minahan, on teaching children self-calming skills. As teachers, parents and therapists, we often tell children to relax or calm down, but many children don't know how and behavior can escalate. The article explains three simple steps to help kids learn to self-calm: teach students to identify emotions, teach students self-calming strategies and practice with the student. Be sure to read the full article here for some great suggestions on how to implement these steps. I've also rounded up ten apps that can be used to address these skills"

Medical Students as Change Agents: The Next Step from AMEE 2014 - in-Training

Medical Students as Change Agents: The Next Step from AMEE 2014 - in-Training | Emotions and empathy in Medical Education | Scoop.it
In his rousing and intermittently aggressive plenary address to the thousands congregated last week at the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) Excellence in Education conference in Milan, Richard Horton bemoaned the stagnation of modern medical education, implicating everything from the ivory-tower universities of old to the world health care economy for the plummeting decline of medical education. “Two percent of total expenditures in medicine are invested on education,” the editor-in-chief of The Lancet barked. “And that meager, pitiful amount of money jeopardizes the other 98 percent.” The overarching theme of his talk, entitled “Meanings of Medicine: The Convergence and Crises of Civilizations,” was the dire need for physicians worldwide to reclaim and reenvision the whole of medical practice by instigating radical reforms in all disciplines. The ultimate goal? “Health is essential to our future vision for our planet,” said Horton. “We must offer global vision for the right to health, equity and social justice.” At the end of his address, the audience, emotionally exhausted by Horton’s much-needed speech of doom and gloom, was slow to approach the microphones for Q&A. One gentleman asked what some of us were fervently live-tweeting (I was #3!) and certainly all of us …
Annalisa Manca's insight:

"All of these students identified a problem that they witnessed among their peers — or even participated in themselves — designed a way to study it, and made plans for how to change it.

Students studying students. Students changing student education. It’s an elegant and particularly powerful framework to create change in medical education." ... "The next step is directed to my fellow students: get angry.

“There is a growing sense of anger, passion that people want to translate into action,” said Horton of the medical education community in his address."

"By directing those pangs of moral distress at situations witnessed in the classroom or on the wards into productive study, students can become champions and change agents for their colleagues and their future patients."

Can Empathy Be As Effective As Aspirin? The Patient-Clinician Relationship Affects Medical Outcomes - Humanizing Medicine

Can Empathy Be As Effective As Aspirin? The Patient-Clinician Relationship Affects Medical Outcomes - Humanizing Medicine | Emotions and empathy in Medical Education | Scoop.it
Helen Riess discusses her recent study results that suggest that empathy in the doctor-patient relationship has a significant effect on healthcare outcomes.
Annalisa Manca's insight:

"The studies – which involved care of patients with conditions like diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and osteoarthritis – examined the impact of interventions, which trained clinicians in a variety of relationship-based techniques.  Some of these interventions were focused on the relationship itself, like making more eye contact with patients and attending more closely to their emotions, while others used relationship-based strategies such as motivational interviewing and goal setting to address the health issue in question."

E' l'empatia la chiave dello sbadiglio contagioso - Le Scienze

E' l'empatia la chiave dello sbadiglio contagioso - Le Scienze | Emotions and empathy in Medical Education | Scoop.it
Lo sbadiglio, nell'uomo come negli altri animali, è contagioso più di qualunque altro comportamento osservato in un consimile. Una recente ricerca su scimpanzé che vivono in una riserva protetta ha ora dimostrato che queste scimmie imitano lo sbadiglio degli esseri umani, ma non quello di babbuini né di scimpanzé non imparentati con loro. Questo dimostrerebbe che alla base dello sbadiglio contagioso ci sia un sentimento di empatia 
Annalisa Manca's insight:

Un principio di psicologia chiamato “effetto della semplice esposizione” afferma che essere esposti a una persona sconosciuta è sufficiente a facilitare una maggiore simpatia verso di essa. Potrebbe anche favorire l'empatia? È una domanda importante, perché la posta in gioco è alta, anche se la cultura umana è infinitamente più complessa di quella degli scimpanzé. Se non altro, questa ricerca evidenzia che “un coinvolgimento sociale flessibile era probabilmente già presente nel più recente antenato comune che abbiamo con gli scimpanzé”, sottolineano Campbell e de Waal, che concludono con una nota di speranza.
