The Haunted Curriculum: Engaging Ghosts... - David Ansari

A Montgomery Lecture

The Haunted Curriculum:
Engaging Ghosts in Mental Health Care and
Health Professions Education

Scholarly accounts of socialization and professionalization in a variety of health professions have emphasized how intuitions, skills, and judgments become embodied through apprenticeships, where novices are absorbed in communities of practice and transformed into experts. Drawing on ethnographic research on apprenticeships among budding psychotherapists in France, who support patients whose mental health has been adversely affected by displacement and discrimination and situating it with accounts of injustice in clinical training, Professor Ansari will engage the exciting field of hauntology to examine the emergence of these specters and the ways they shape the development and performance of expertise. This talk will extend this framework to understand how the development of clinical skill and expertise is orchestrated within and beyond haunted sites of apprenticeship. Engaging the ghosts of clinical training requires more than simply identifying them. Instead, affective engagements demonstrate how the development of dispositions and a clinical habitus are experienced differently by different learners, and these engagements posit alternative ways of conceptualizing belonging and inclusivity in health professions education.

This lecture is open to the public and will be held in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior), Chicago Campus. For those outside the Chicago area and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, a Zoom option is also available.

Recognizing War and Militarism as Threats to Global Population Health

Evanston - 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Recent events have reminded us that the violence of war causes significant damage to affected populations, through both the direct violence of bombs and guns as well as the indirect violence of deprivation, neglect, and oppression. In this talk, Dr. Yara Asi will discuss the health outcomes of war in the war environment and for those displaced by war, using the Gaza Strip as a case study of the many ways political violence harms population health.

Dr. Yara Asi is an Assistant Professor at the University of Central Florida in the School of Global Health Management and Informatics. Her research agenda focuses on global health, human rights, and development in fragile populations. She is a Non-Resident Fellow at the Arab Center Washington DC, a 2020-2021 Fulbright US Scholar to the West Bank, and the Fall 2021 US Fellow at Al Shabaka Policy Network.

NMH Medical Ethics Grand Rounds - Requests for/refusal of healthcare workers....

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Northwestern Memorial Hospital

VIRTUAL Medical Ethics Grand Rounds

Requests for/refusal of healthcare workers:
When should we accommodate?

Northwestern Medicine is committed to providing culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and patient-centered care. Yet, patient and family requests to restrict the types of clinicians, staff or trainees assigned to the patient may directly conflict with the rights of healthcare workers to equal opportunity and to an environment free from bigotry, racism, and other forms of discrimination. This ethics grand rounds will review relevant NM policies designed to assist employees and leaders in responding to these requests and provide insight into how to support the healthcare workers impacted by them.

Speakers:

M. Jeanne Wirpsa, MA, BCC, HEC-C
Program Director and Clinical Ethicist
Medical Ethics Program
Northwestern Memorial Hospital

Erin Slade-Smith, MSN, RN
Director, Administration
NM Academy, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
