EXHIBITIONS IN CLINICS AND HOSPITALS
ARTRUISM ORIGINAL ART WORKS exhibited various clinics have been shown to have positive effects, not only on patients, but also on the caregivers.
A British paper from 2007 demonstrated art's "positive effects not only on patient well being but also on health outcome such as length of stay in hospital and pain tolerance." And last year, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts annouced a collaboration with an area hospital to allow doctors to prescribe museum visits to patients.
The largely positive perceptions of staff helps in the implementation of arts in healthcare settings, which enhances care and benefits both patients and healthcare staff. The prospect that art has beneficial effects on patient recovery is widespread.
