Dr. Adam Striker discusses the discipline of medical humanities and the many ways humanities and anesthesiology intersect and interact with Dr. Audrey Shafer, guest editor of the March ASA Monitor. What can history and art tell us about our specialty and our patients? How can storytelling and poetry enhance our patient communication? What role do the humanities play in reminding us of the humanity of our patients, our fellow health care workers, and ourselves. This and more in this nuanced and rewarding episode.
