Q: WHAT IS NARRATIVE MEDICINE?
A: It’s knowing what to do with stories. My group and I have developed many, many narrative practices and routines for teaching and clinical work. One is called the “parallel chart.” We give clinicians or students this instruction: Write the things about your care of a patient that do not belong in his or her chart. These parallel charts expose matters that open up in the care of an individual patient, even if they’re simply things like “I’m angry at this guy,” or “This woman makes me sad...”

"I actually believe that all of us have a gift of intuition but I think some of us have it more than others, or perhaps as in my case, I really worked at developing it. I think we all have what I call an “intercompass”, a compass of the soul and when we pay attention to it, it points us in the right direction. So I’ve always been fascinated with intuition and for me it comes in images and feelings and words and pictures and sometimes dreams..."
