Communication and Connectivity in Healthcare: the Narrative Medicine Approach
Abstract: According to Brian Hurwitz (2011), Narrative Medicine (NM) is not new in its enhancement of narrative in clinical practice. What is new is its multi- and interdisciplinary approach that privileges the sharing of narratives and knowledge across disciplinary boundaries as a means to optimise clinical practice. In this workshop I will briefly state the premises of NM, give examples of infield work with interdisciplinary research teams and propose a practical exercise in NM.
