3:00 PM—3:15 PM The Florida Arts in Health Mapping Project
Prevalence of arts in health programs in the US was documented through surveys in 2004 and 2007. A resulting 2009 report is widely cited, but no state-level data is available. The Florida Arts in Health Mapping Project developed a systematic mapping protocol including systematic search, verification and online survey. The project mapped 107 Florida programs and provides descriptive information that may assist with benchmarking nationally.
1. Participants will evaluate a protocol for mapping arts in health programs at the state or regional level.
3:15 PM –3:50 PM Arts in Health Research: Let’s Team Up!
The presenters will discuss the rationale for conducting arts in health research and will describe the types of research projects and roles for members of the arts in health team. We will focus on practical considerations regarding research involvement for individuals without extensive prior research exposure. Examples from our own program and other published studies will be provided to illustrate key questions about arts in health research.
