Translating Narrative Medicine from Classroom to Clinic

November 16, 2021

A study on the use of narrative medicine practices for patients living with HIV, co-authored by Anne Vo, PhD, KPSOM Senior Director of Assessment and Evaluation and Assistant Professor of Health Systems Science, found potential wide-ranging benefits in HIV care. 

The study, published recently in the Journal of Medical Humanities, involved medical students who co-wrote patients’ life narratives into the patients’ electronic health record. It found that patients were able to convey their unique life experiences and voices, while the students could contribute value to patients’ healthcare.
