EWNJ Wednesday Women’s Wellness Check In
Dr. Chris T. Pernell will discuss how narrative medicine can be used as an effective tool to promote health and well-being. This approach can be empowering for self-care strategies and to help create more inclusive understanding of how illness may impact a person’s life. Narrative medicine is a more holistic method of care and looks beyond symptoms and treatments options to consider the whole person and their unique need, beliefs and values. More broadly, the use of narrative can help to foster empathy and drive equity in provider interactions and within systems of care.
