Summary This book brings together an edited selection of presentations from the Association for Medical Humanities (AMH) annual conference 2015, held at Dartington Hall, Devon, UK, June 23-25. The congress entitled, Dangerous currents: risk & regulation at the interface of medicine & the arts, addresses the question, How might innovative performing arts help to develop medical education and practice. It includes papers and accounts of both keynote talks and performances, presenting cutting-edge activity, thinking and research in the medical and health humanities. The volume also offers an archive of a visual arts exhibition focused on surgical themes that ran in conjunction with the conference.
