The rate of progress in medicine since the 20th century has surpassed the rate observed in the human history of the last few thousand years. In recent years, healthcare models and doctor-patient relationships were transformed rapidly with the integration of medical technology and swift development of artificial intelligence (AI). In the time of pandemic crisis in 2020, people began to reflect on how multiple facets including the ill and pain-ridden psyche, social culture, and interpersonal relationships, have gone beyond the realms of technology and medicine as the influences of “human”, “society”, and “illness” intertwine. Is technology enhancing physical and psychological care, and allowing health care providers to deliver more effective treatment? Or is it distancing care providers and patients in terms of care and respect? If the growth of medical technology and AI is inevitable, can we still rediscover the “human” aspects in this irreversible climate? And how can educators re-discover the patient-centered humanistic education niche in the era of big data and advanced medical technology?
On December 5th, 2020, Kaohsiung Medical University’s annual Conference on Medical Professionalism and Humanities presents “Rediscovering the Human in a Digital World – Reflections on Healthcare, Technology & Education”, inviting experts from medical anthropology, medical humanities, healthcare and technology, and medical education to explore from multiple facets (i.e. historical overview, humanistic approach, educational practice, etc.) the impacts of the digital care era on health care providers and patients. We will also explore how we can respond and reflect, as professional health care providers, to render more complete, humanistic health care while also utilizing medical technologies.
We cordially invite you to join us.
