Narrative Medizin: Theorie und Praxis in den USA und Deutschland

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

The article focuses on the role of literary methods, i.e. close reading, within medical practice and education. Drawing on the approaches used in the “Program in Narrative Medicine,” which is taught at Columbia University in New York City under the auspices of Rita Charon, Narrative Medicine provides an innovative approach to the study of medicine and literature because it aims at enhancing ‘narrative competency’ in medical personnel. Practitioners of Narrative Medicine claim that literature and literary methods improve active and attentive listening in doctor-patient encounters, mindfulness of different viewpoints, an understanding of the complexity and ambiguity of illness experiences as well as the ability to foster self-care by providing tools for self-reflection to medical personnel. The article first presents and discusses the theoretical background as well as the promises and limits of Narrative Medicine before it describes two implementations of this approach in Germany. The assessment of the implementations suggests the relevance of a narrative-based approach to medical education and practice.
