Title Compassionately Accountable: A Demonstration of Arts-Integrated, Interactive Approaches
Rationale/Background From 2019 to 2022, four medical schools with social accountability mandates from across four uniquely different contexts (nationally from Australia, Canada and the USA) conducted a study to investigate people's perceptions of social accountability. The study (Stories and Art of Local Transformation in Health Education, or SALT-HE) used a multimodal arts-integrated methodology called "Parallaxic Praxis" (Sameshima 2019). "Care" and "compassion" emerged as critical concepts out of the qualitative data. Content analysis of the data and pedagogical discussions helped the team to realize that without compassion as the foundation, social accountability can run the risk of becoming an institutional or governmental check box for health professionals. In the follow-up interviews, participants of the study found that the arts integrated discussion was very effective in engaging visualization, conceptualization, and expression of ideas. In this workshop, participants will experience an arts integrated workshop and discuss ideas for integrating such an approach to support a socially accountable medical education fueled by compassion.
