GTC North American Alumni Reunion
Saturday 17 April 2010

Speakers: Rita Charon, Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at the University of Columbia in New York and Sir Muir Gray, Chief Knowledge Officer of the UK National Health Service (NHS) and Professor of Knowledge Management in the Oxford University Department of Surgery.

Clinicians need to develop sophisticated narrative skills to take account of patients' experiences in medical diagnosis and treatment. The new field of narrative medicine is developing robust methods to equip clinicians with the narrative skills to recognize, interpret and act upon patients' and colleagues' stories of illness. Once these stories are captured and the clinician knows how to decode the data contained in words and relation, then the practice of medicine can truly be based on its full complement of evidence.
