Narrative Medicine

The overall purpose of the project is to strengthen the communicative competencies of healthcare professionals by illustrating the roles of narratives and metaphors in illness narratives and patient conversations in life-changing situations, where the patient, alone or in conversation with healthcare professionals, seeks an acknowledgement of the often-decisive directions taken in life. This is done based one of the basic principles of narrative medicine, that the understanding of the patient’s life situation is a prerequisite for effective communication and treatment.

Participants: Anette Søgaard Nielsen, Cindie Maagaard, & Anita Wohlmann.
