Tragedy, Trauma, or Typical: the ethical impact of coping with the stressors of clinical healthcare delivery via personal creative exploration
Regardless of the environment, healthcare clinicians partner with patients and families during their most intimate and vulnerable experiences. Some of these interactions fall under what most would consider typical or routine, but for many, healthcare experiences are filled with unexpected procedures, language barriers, mistrust, and anxiety. In the most extreme cases, patients receive life alternating diagnoses, experience trauma, or have their assumptions and expectations challenged by disease or injury.
