参观艺术馆画廊是否可以让患者防治糖尿病、抑郁症这样的身体与精神疾病?加拿大医生协会和蒙特利尔美术馆正在进行一项实验性新计划,该计划将让医生为美术馆之旅撰写处方。

加拿大无国界医生联合会副主席HélèneBoyer博士告诉加拿大广播公司新闻说,医学上很少见到这样的处方,你做出医疗建议并不需要担心会有什么副作用或与其他药物的相互作用。

该博物馆馆长兼首席策展人Nathalie Bondil说:“最重要的是拥有这种经验,帮助他们摆脱痛苦。当你进入美术馆时,你摆脱了我们日常生活的速度。这是一座现代化的大教堂。

这个试运行项目将运行一年,它的运作是相信博物馆环境可能有益于各种条件,从精神健康到饮食失调和高血压 - 它将被视为对传统治疗的补充。

'越来越多的科学证据表明,艺术疗法对身体健康有益。它增加了我们的皮质醇水平和我们的血清素水平。博耶告诉蒙特利尔公报,当我们参观博物馆时,我们会分泌荷尔蒙,而这些荷尔蒙带给我们幸福感。医生将被允许发放多达50个处方,允许一家四口进入蒙特利尔美术馆。

尽管蒙特利尔计划将自己描述为第一种类型,本月早些时候,英国政府公布了一项预计180万英镑的新公共卫生战略,其中包括艺术课程在内的一系列活动,可以在国家卫生服务中心开出鼓励向患有孤独症的患者推荐社交活动,而不是提供基于药物的治疗。

Can Art Cure You? Doctors to Prescribe Museum Visits in Pioneering Treatment

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Canadian doctors are experimenting with a new initiative combating physical and mental ailments

Can a visit to the art gallery provide an escape for patients, suffering a range of ailments, from diabetes to depression? An association of Canadian physicians and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts are taking that bet in an experimental new initiative, which will see doctors writing prescriptions for a trip to the museum.

‘It’s so rare in medicine that you prescribe something and you do not need to worry about all those side-effects or interactions with other medication,’ Dr Hélène Boyer, vice-president of Médecins francophones du Canada told CBC News.

Nathalie Bondil, director general and chief curator of the museum said: ‘What is most important is to have this experience which is to help them escape from their own pain […] When you enter the museum, you escape from the speed of our daily life. It’s a kind of modern cathedral.’

The pilot project, which will run for a year, operates under the belief that a museum setting might prove beneficial to a variety of conditions, from mental health to eating disorders and high blood pressure – it will be considered complementary to conventional treatment.

‘There’s more and more scientific proof that art therapy is good for your physical health. It increases our level of cortisol and our level of serotonin. We secrete hormones when we visit a museum and these hormones are responsible for our well-being,’ Boyer told the Montreal Gazette. Doctors will be able to issue up to 50 prescriptions granting entry to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts for a family of four.

Although the Montreal scheme describes itself as the first of kits kind, earlier this month, the UK government unveiled a new GBP£1.8 million public health strategy in which a range of activities including art lessons could be prescribed on the National Health Service, with doctors encouraged to recommend social activities to patients suffering from loneliness, rather than offering drug-based treatments.
