WHAT curates an art collection of over 560 works that is on display in every nook and cranny of University Hospital Waterford transforming the hospital building from a bare, sterile, institutional space to a more human place. Recognising how valuable The Arts can be in improving health outcomes as well as promoting health and wellbeing in the wider community, this NSW Health and The Arts Framework enables the NSW Health system to maximise the benefits of integrating The Arts into the design and delivery of health services, and health messaging.
Three years later, in consultation with the journal advisory board and to reflect the publication’s broadening scope and international status as the open access peer reviewed academic journal in the field, the journal was renamed The International Journal of The Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice, IJCAIP.

The web based open access academic journal is accessible to researchers, educators and students in over 15,000 libraries in 60 countries around the world including developing nations and has published several textbooks, among them the upcoming text book Creative Arts in Humane Medicine edited by McLean with publisher Brush Education, a provocative new text for medical educators developed in response to the growing need for resources in the arts and medicine.
