[Perspectives] Arts-based learning for a Circle of Care

Over the past 3 years, staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust have been offered courses that draw on ideas from theatre, dance, and the visual arts as part of a collaboration between the Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre (SaIL) and the Performing Medicine programme. The stories we have heard during this time leave no doubt that a career in health care is intensely demanding: a nurse sitting in a mortuary with a grieving mother, wondering “was it ok that I cried too?”; an anaesthetist attempting to save the life of a pregnant woman with her terrified husband looking on; team reactions after the terrorist attack on Westminster Bridge; a senior nurse enforcing the use of the WHO checklist to a sceptical surgeon; an A&E consultant punched in the face by a drunk patient; or a pharmacist frustrated by the snail’s pace of the computer system.
