February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presented by: Erin Fitzgerald, UK Human Development Institute (HDI) Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary (CTP) Coordinator, Supported Higher Education Project
Session description: This seminar will explore ways in which comics and illustrations can help reduce barriers and increase understanding between clients and clinicians in healthcare settings. We will start with an introduction to the field of Graphic Medicine, which is the intersection of graphic arts and the field of health and medicine. We will then look at the overlap between the concepts of Graphic Medicine and Universal Design, and explore ways to apply these concepts in practical ways.
• Learn the concept of Graphic Medicine and be able to give examples
• Discuss the concepts of Universal Design and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and be able to describe each in simple terms
• Explore the overlap between these two concepts and how they might complement each other
• Identify at least one possible practical application of these concepts in your clinical practice, as well as next steps to make that happen
