HLTC55H3: Methods in Arts-Based Health Research

This course introduces students to the practice of arts-based health research (ABHR), which involves the formal integration of creative art forms into health research methods and outcomes. Students will learn about the conceptual foundations of ABHR and explore various methods for generating, interpreting and representing health-related research (e.g., narrative, performance, visual arts, digital storytelling, or body mapping). With reference to concrete exemplars and experiential learning in creative forms, students will examine critical issues of methodological quality, evidence, research ethics, implementation challenges, and opportunities for arts-based health research in Canada and the global context.
