Arts in Health: Designing and researching interventions

A new book by Daisy Fancourt, published by Oxford University Press, that provides an overview of how to go about undertaking research and practice in the field of arts in health.

Part I explores the context for arts in health interventions, including the history of the use of arts in health and the theoretical and political developments that have laid the foundations for its flourishing. Part II examines how to design an arts in health intervention, develop partnerships and find funding and considers the sensitivities around working in healthcare. Part III considers the value of research for the field of arts in health and how to design and undertake a research project. Part IV provides a fact file of arts in health research and practice, showing how the arts can be applied and the benefits they can bring across a range of medical disciplines.

The book will be launched officially at the Culture, Health and Wellbeing conference in Bristol (19-21 June). As an introductory offer, OUP is giving 20% off through their website using the code ACFLYP8 for a short time.
