by James P. Meza, Integrating Narrative Medicine And Evidence Based Medicine Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Integrating Narrative Medicine And Evidence Based Medicine book, Scientific, evidence-based medicine is increasingly seen as fundamental to providing effective healthcare, but narrative-based medicine sheds light on social and interpersonal aspects of the practitioner-patient interaction which can also greatly affect healthcare outcomes. The philosophies underlying these two approaches seem to contrast, yet those who can integrate both into their practice are among the most successful medical professionals. Integrating Narrative Medicine and Evidence-based Medicine provides answers to the key question of how medical practitioners can best put both approaches into practice. It anticipates a future where evidence-based practice will be expected of all medical professionals, but contends that the integration of a narrative-based approach will also be crucial, presenting a unique perspective on structuring the patient-professional encounter for optimum results. It develops a cultural analysis and socio-cultural theory of the science of healing, and describes an efficient method by which medical practitioners can find and use medical research at the point of care with current technology and skills. This addresses the need for translational science--moving research into practice--identified by the National Institutes of Health. This book will be essential reading for educators of medical students and postgraduate trainees, behavioral scientists, psychologists, social scientists working in medical settings, and health managers and administrators. Medical students and postgraduate trainees will also find it useful in their learning. --Publisher description.
by Rita Charon, Narrative Medicine Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Narrative Medicine book, Narrative medicine has emerged in response to a commodified health care system that places corporate and bureaucratic concerns over the needs of the patient. Generated from a confluence of sources including humanities and medicine, primary care medicine, narratology, and the study of doctor-patient relationships, narrative medicine is medicine practiced with the competence to recognize, absorb, interpret, and be moved by the stories of illness. By placing events in temporal order, with beginnings, middles, and ends, and by establishing connections among things using metaphor and figural language, narrative medicine helps doctors to recognize patients and diseases, convey knowledge, accompany patients through the ordeals of illness--and according to Rita Charon, can ultimately lead to more humane, ethical, and effective health care. Trained in medicine and in literary studies, Rita Charon is a pioneer of and authority on the emerging field of narrative medicine. In this important and long-awaited book she provides a comprehensive and systematic introduction to the conceptual principles underlying narrative medicine, as well as a practical guide for implementing narrative methods in health care. A true milestone in the field, it will interest general readers, and experts in medicine and humanities, and literary theory.
by Franziska Gygax, Narrative Matters In Medical Contexts Across Disciplines Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Narrative Matters In Medical Contexts Across Disciplines book, This collection of original chapters gives center stage to the concept of ‘narrative’ in medical contexts. The contributors come from the disciplines of literary and cultural studies, linguistics, psychology, and medicine and work with texts as diverse as autobiographies, graphic novels, Renaissance medical treatises and reports, short stories, reflective writing, creative writing, and online narratives. The interdisciplinary dialogue shows the richness and scope of the concept ‘narrative’ and demonstrates how crucial it is for practices in the medical context as well as in the contributing disciplines. The collection raises awareness of the great variety and multivocality of narratives on the experience of illness besides paying heed to the many different positions and angles from which these narratives can be perceived, read, and analyzed. The wide range of approaches assembled in this collection provides a comprehensive view on illness and health and on the multiple ways in which they are represented in narrative.
by Peter L. Rudnytsky, Rescuing Psychoanalysis From Freud And Other Essays In Re Vision Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rescuing Psychoanalysis From Freud And Other Essays In Re Vision book, In his latest groundbreaking book, the author examines the history of psychoanalysis from a resolutely independent perspective. At once spellbinding case histories and meticulously crafted gems of scholarship, Rudnytsky's essays are "re-visions" in that each sheds fresh light on its subject but they are also avowedly "revisionist" in their scepticism towards all forms of psychoanalytic orthodoxy. Beginning with a judicious reappraisal of Freud and ranging in scope from King Lear to contemporary neuroscience, the author treats in depth the lives and work of Ferenczi, Jung, Stekel, Winnicott, Coltart, and Little, each of whom sought to "rescue psychoanalysis" by summoning it to live up to its highest ideals.
by Simon Peng-Keller, Sterbenarrative Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sterbenarrative book, Vom eigenen und fremden Sterben zu erzählen, ist populärer denn je. Oft sind es unheilbar Erkrankte, die erzählend von ihrem nahen Lebensende berichten und es auf diese Weise gestalten. Doch auch Hinterbliebene und professionelle Begleiterinnen und Begleiter erzählen vom Sterben. Die Lebensendforschung hat die Bedeutung des Erzählens am Lebensende seit Langem erkannt. Dennoch sind die Eigentümlichkeiten von Sterbenarrativen bislang nur punktuell in den Blick gekommen. Der vorliegende Band lotet das Erzählen am und vom Lebensende aus unterschiedlichen wissenschaftlichen, ethischen und praktischen Perspektiven aus. Was zeichnet dieses Erzählen aus? Was unterscheidet Sterbeerzählungen von breiter angelegten biographischen Narrationen und insbesondere von Krankheitserzählungen? Ist die Rede von Sterbenarrativen geeignet, die vielfältigen kontextuell bestimmten Formen des Erzählens vom Sterben auf erzählgrammatischer Ebene zu bündeln?
by Rita Charon, The Principles And Practice Of Narrative Medicine Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Principles And Practice Of Narrative Medicine book, Narrative medicine is a fresh discipline of health care that helps patients and health professionals to tell and listen to the complex and unique stories of illness. The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine expresses the collective experience and discoveries of the originators of the field. Arising at Columbia University in 2000 from roots in the humanities and patient-centered care, narrative medicine draws patients, doctors, nurses, therapists, and health activists together to re-imagine a health care based on trust and trustworthiness, humility, and mutual recognition. Over a decade of education and research has crystallized the goals and methods of narrative medicine, leading to increasingly powerful means to improve the care that patients receive. The methods described in this book harness creativity and insight to help the professionals in being with patients, not just to diagnose and treat them but to bear witness to what they undergo. Narrative medicine training in literary theory, philosophy, narrative ethics, and the creative arts increases clinicians' capacity to perceive the turmoil and suffering borne by patients and to help them to cohere or endure the chaos of illness. Narrative medicine has achieved an international reputation and reach. Many health care settings adopt methods of narrative medicine in teaching and practice. Through the Master of Science in Narrative Medicine graduate program and health professions school curricula at Columbia University, more and more clinicians and scholars have obtained the rigorous training necessary to practice and teach narrative medicine. This text is offered to all who seek the opportunity for disciplined training in narrative medicine. By clearly articulating our principles and practice, this book provides the standards of the field for those who want to join us in seeking authenticity, recognition, affiliation, and justice in a narrative health care.
