The ethics of art : an exploration of the role and significance of art/artists in health care settings
Woodhams, Elizabeth Jean Deshon Smith (1995) The ethics of art : an exploration of the role and significance of art/artists in health care settings. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
The presence of art and artists in health care settings raise many questions of an ethical nature. The presence of art in such milieux challenges the manner in which notions of art, persons, health, healing, community, ethics and aesthetics are presently conceptualized. This thesis will argue that art ought properly be considered an essential human need - integral to the health, flourishing and well-being of all persons - particularly those who are sick and suffering. An ethical care of sick persons would demand that both artistic practice and health care practice be revisioned in the light of this different understanding.
