Health Communications: Methods for Meaningful Collaboration – PART 1: Narrative & Medicine



Operating from the premise that effective patient-provider communication is essential to the efficacy of health related interventions, this multi-part presentation will cover a variety of topics in health communication.

The first part, entitled Narrative & Medicine will discuss strategies for honoring patient stories in practice, and for using those stories as a diagnostic tool. Drawing upon the principles of narrative medicine (Charon, 2001), practitioners will learn to see patients’ stories of illness not only as sties for harvesting relevant clinical information, but as opportunities for patient and provider to engage in mutual meaning making.
