The Importance of Narrative Medicine

Patient narratives can provide important insights. Deep listening and understanding a person’s narrative can really open our eyes to people’s illness experience, including how they make sense of their ill-health, and how they engage with recovery and rehabilitation. Narratives contribute to how both patients and physicians make sense of health and illness, and have an increasingly instrumental value, as a tool to improve care.
