This volume is a unique compendium of professional and practical knowledge on new paradigms and approaches in Teaching, Research, Innovation and Public Engagement that is currently missing from the Higher Education market. The intended audience includes healthcare, biomedical and physical sciences discipline specialists active in teaching, along with their students, science communicators associated with the above subjects and academics involved in relevant research/innovation. Its contents will be organised under the following three themes: 1)Scholarship of Teaching and Learning discussing pertinent knowledge, in this area, and inspiring educators to pursue similar medical humanities endeavours. The focus is on pedagogy/teaching including professional knowledge/expertise, reflections, literature reviews and evidence on a wide range of medical, biomedical and physical sciences topics interweaved with humanities. 2) Research and Innovation discussing novel work and paradigms as examples for future use/implementation. The focus is firstly on original research utilising cutting-edge technology and secondly on innovation with discussions around poetry and building communities. 3) Public Engagement discussing relevant science communication paradigms transferable to other settings and applications. The focus is on practical knowledge and examples from a wide range of healthcare and biomedical sciences topics interweaved with humanities while also exploring the hidden curriculum of public engagement and heritage practices through the lens of equality, diversity and inclusion. All chapter authors are renowned experts in their respective fields, who bring together a wealth of professional and practical knowledge, enriching the narrative of this edited book volume.

The European Narrative Medicine Society was born from an idea of the Italian Society of Narrative Medicine (SIMeN), and  it is an association of non-profit researchers dedicated to the investigation of Medical Humanities and Humanities for Health in the medical, health care, social services.

The purpose of this European Society is to promote and strengthen dialogues, discussions on the present and the future of Medical Humanities and narrative medicine, for health professionals, researchers (both academics and non-academics), humanists, teachers and other professionals coming from every branch. All this with the aim to contribute to improve both the well-being of people who suffer from a physical condition or a mental illness, and the health workers, the caregivers, the social services and the citizenship.
