7th Annual Narrative Medicine - Building Mindfulness and Resilience in a Changing World

October 16, 2021

This conference is being held virtually.

This presentation will discuss narrative medicine which is a practice that encourages patients to share personal narratives with their provider to promote healing. The approach focuses on creating a connection between the patient and doctor through the sharing of stories and emotions. It is re-humanizing health care and increasing capacity for empathy and self-reflection.
