Introduction by three international experts in the field of the theory and practice of the patient-centred approach of narrative medicine.

The aim of this two-day workshop is to introduce the audience (doctors, nursing, patients and administrative staff of the Ghent Hospitals, but also other interested parties) to the practice and the concepts underlying that practice of what is called narrative medicine. Narrative medicine has multiple aspects: it is an ethical stance, an innovative form of medical education, and a way to engage in clinical practice.

Our three speakers, international authorities in the field, will show in their workshop based interventions how this narrative practice can be of interest to different actors in the hospital environment: not only patients, doctors and caregivers, but also relatives and loved ones of patients and administrators of hospitals.
