2. Why is patient / client narratives important
Patient /client narratives are important because it introduces the patient’s perspective into our understanding illness. It allows us to adopt a more patient / client approach to the delivery of health care. Conversely it helps us in the recognition that other individuals have perspectives and values which differ from our own. Example: A family’s story of their thoughts, feelings and fears bound up in their 10 year old daughter having type 1 diabetes may elicit an understanding that it is not just about the condition. It is how it represents an entire way of living in which their lives are consumed by choices, risks and restrictions that diabetes has imposed upon the family.
