Using Storytelling to Transform Healthcare
The narratives that patients and practitioners construct together can affect the nature and meaning of health events. Understanding how to listen, give voice to experience, and integrate insights gained from reflection can improve patient care and practitioner fulfillment. Learn these essential skills in CPD’s Narrative-Based Medicine certificate program.
The only certificate of its kind in Canada, this unique program trains participants in narrative-based medicine skills: close reading, reflective writing, listening and communication skills.
In 8 sessions held over 6 months, participants will:
- Develop reflective and creative writing skills through tailored practical exercises
- Gain one-on-one editing, guidance, and mentorship from a prize-winning author
- Cover the theory and practice of narrative-based medicine through expert guest speakers and readings
- Engage in a small group seminar format which encourages interaction, collaboration and teamwork
Upon completion of the program, participants will be better equipped to work with stories of all kinds to positively impact their fulfillment and patient care.
