Course Overview:
The history of humor, laughter, and overall health has been a part of human civilization for centuries. There are examples throughout ancient history that showcase how people could recognize that a joyful spirit positively affected their health. For example, Greek physicians prescribed a visit to the hall of comedians as a part of the patient healing process. On top of this, 14th-century physicians would utilize humor during surgery to distract their patients, and in many cultures, serviced clowns/jesters would attempt to inspire laughter during procedures (1). As a pediatric health care provider, it’s essential to recognize the importance that humor and laughter can play in the patient’s experience and recovery. Developing skills and/or utilizing available resources can make a real difference for the pediatric patient, family, and community (8).
