Story Quote #3–Care of Sick Unfolds in Stories

Columbia University is offering a graduate program in narrative medicine!!

“The care of the sick unfolds in stories. The effective practice of healthcare requires the narrative competence to recognize, absorb, interpret, and act on the stories and experiences of others. Medicine practiced with narrative competence is a model for humane and effective healthcare.” (see ad in Jan. 19, 2009 New Yorker Magazine)
