An interview with Brooke Ellison, March 2010:
What is the role of hope in medical care? It is a complex and vital one, and it will soon be the focus of a six week elective course, The Ethics of Hope. The course will be taught to second year medical students at Stony Brook University Medical center this coming March.
The instructors are Brooke Ellison, 31, a doctoral candidate in sociology, and Steven G. Post, Director of Medical Humanities and Compassionate Care at Stony Brook University. They make a strong case for examining the role of hope in medical care, a perspective that is not commonly a part of the training for medical students. “I want to take the subject of hope out of the philosophical realm and provide students a structured way of thinking about it,” Ellison states.
