Art in Medicine Research Projects

Research is crucial to the incorporating of more art in the healthcare environment.  The Art to Heart Project was a two part research project at Vanderbilt University Medical Center with the second part including the University of Florida.  The Art to Heart Project studied the use of art on the rehabilitation of Post Operative Cardiovascular Surgery patients and was published in MED/SURG Nursing in the September/October 2015 edition. Part Two found the art had a secondary benefit on the staff of the unit where the art was displayed.

Some exciting new projects are on the way! Just for a hint: One involves comic books for patient education!  More will be coming on that as the project progresses.
