Discussion on Module 6, "University and Higher Education Level Courses for Healthcare Professional Workers"
by Federico Pixel - Monday, 15 July 2013, 3:04 PM
 

Dear participants, Welcome to the forum on module 6. This space is meant to give you the possibility to share your opinion with the other participants.

The aim of the module is to reach healthcare professionals (practitioners, clinicians, apprenticeship supervisors) who both work at universities or other institutions of higher education and participate in the education of future medical staff, as well as academics and encourage them to modify curricula. The modification refers to the inclusion in the education system the basics of narrative medicine, parents' pedagogy and ICF system. Goal is to be achieved through the presentation to those responsible for the curriculum benefits from the implementation of the proposed methods.

I think that is necessary to teach all the students the basics of communication (verbal and not verbal), for example, starting from the lesson of P. Watzlawick and the Palo Alto’s School.

At the university we learn everything that later will have an impact on our relationship with the patients, so it is in my opinion the most important part of training of medical staff.

More than in the past communication between people and professionist of the health is necessary, because patients and thir relatives want to have information and to understand what's happening. How, when and who has to do it are the keys of a good health system.

I particularly appreciated the idea of a new patient who studies the treatments suggested by healthcarers in Dr. Grigolo’s introduction, since this implies recognizing family competence.

This is quite clearly illustrated in the HEPPY logo, where a rainbow joins the two faces representing scientific knowledge and experiential knowledge. Further, I believe that adding a written narration to clinical records is important.

I'm a doctor and I've worked for more than 20 years in a little village in Italy. I learnt that to work alone without collaboration of the patient and the other health carer is the worst. Every time I was able to listen -and not only to hear- the patient's or family's or other health carer's voices  I  choose an efficiency therapy and I had a succesfully relationship, even if the patient had a mortal disease. I hope to become  more and more able to listen and valorize the patient and family abilities and lifeskills.

I believe this to be an extremely ambitious goal! Currently medical training hardly includes anything on the relationship with patients, let alone learning to listen to to them!

However, I was deligthed to hear about the Nursing training programmes which include relational aspects and get the students practicing a narrative approach in Turin University.

The lecture given by Dr. Garrino was extremely rich in both concepts and points for reflection. In particular, I appreciated hearing that since 1988 narrative medicine is taught in University training to prepare carers in a different approach (as Rita Charon said: “Being moved by narrations of illness and showing it to patients and their families”).

Indeed, often it is the carer-patient relationship which heals, not the treatment! Of course treatment is important, but the vital role of an empathic and supporting relationship is too often ignored in medical practice.

I agree with the purposes of the module 6. How we communicate, our emotion, our feeling, the espression of our body,  as clinicians , is more important than what we say (Palo Alto School teachs!). Of course, we have to give correct information to our patients, but, we have to let indagate ourself, how we said. As a clinicians i think, as well,  that educate the resilienza of our patients let them to be better, not only  now, but, in the future, as well.

Among the many inspiring ideas in Professor Zucchi’s lecture - on Parent Pedagogy in University training and the special Pedagogy course run by Turin University - I would choose the assertion that Narrative Medicine totally reverses the commonplace idea of considering the “other” as an object rather than a subject. I was deeply moved by the vision of illness, which, when not lethal, is a source of transformation and enrichment. I was also impressed by the idea of parents narrating their own training in educating their children and how narrating themselves generates emotions. Emotions have considerable rational value and Parent Pedagogy confers objective and scientific value to "narration”.

Often illness has deep meanings for the patient and exploring the emotional and psychological aspects related to it can constitute a vital part of the healing process. Too often our culture ecourages fighting illness and considering it an enemy! I believe that this approach leads to an internal war and that a more understanding perspective can be more fruitful.

I think the training at level 1 should be entirely hospital based. This would foster a sense of camaraderie and belonging. There should be no one working in our hospitals who hasn’t undergone some basic training which is not the case at present. It would also sort the sheep from the goats. Many people think they would like to be nurses but find the reality of excreta, vomit and blood etc not to mention the occasional aggression and ingratitude not to their liking. These people would deselect themselves before undertaking an expensive university education

My ultimate aim is to identify the, sometimes overlapping, skills that both principlism and narrative ethics require on the part of health professionals who deploy them. I conclude that a good principlist has narrativist tendencies and a good narrativist is inclined toward principlism.

Very often the patients come to primary care because they want to meet experts who can offer conventional medical explanations for their problems. A narrative approach must provide a way of asking intelligent questions about medical knowledge without disqualifying that knowledge.

I think that the biggest challenge in taking a narrative approach is knowing when to stop. Disease, disability, deprivation and death are not stories. Narrative ideas can help people question their own convictions, but no-one should play postmodernist games with patients’ lives

In our society, nurses don't have to travel to faraway places to encounter all sorts of cultural differences, such as ethnic customs, traditions and taboos.  To be culturally competent the nurse needs to learn how to mix a little cultural understanding with the nursing care they offer. Culture also influences how people seek health care and how they behave toward health care providers. How we care for patients and how patients respond to this care is greatly influenced by culture.

I think that Health care providers must possess the ability and knowledge to communicate and  to understand health behaviors influenced by culture. Having this ability and knowledge can eliminate barriers to the delivery of  health care.  These issues show the need for health care organizations to develop policies, practices and procedures to deliver culturally competent care.

The lecture by Professor Liboni was for me the most difficult to follow because of its detailed scientific content. However, it was fascinating to hear that facing each other - i.e. looking at each other in the eyes and seeing one’s selves as social entities - acquires scientific validity with the latest neuroscience findings. Further, I found it extremely interesting to hear how our brain modifies itself also on the basis of our actions.

Among all living beings man is the only one who has to give an interpretation about himself. No one has to wonder what is, for what purpose and what is the meaning of their life. In this context it may be said that man is a being unfinished or better, which is a task for himself and intrinsically a part of his life and his way of being , the task of discovering the meaning of being alive and human.So, I think that is very important to treat a person as a human being and if the healthcare professionals  don't know how to do this, than maybe a course in their university should be usefull.

I'm Ioana Codreanu and I think that we can see the Narrative Medicine as an important element of medical education by his value of personalization and stimulating reflection. Looking at a patient is a therapeutic and conducive way  to recovery,which also can point out the perception of the disease and stimulates patient-doctor empathy.

Although it may seem a literary or artistic work, do not be deceived, we must learn to take the Narrative Medicine as part of the medical learning process as an important supporting pillar figures to  texts of treaties and manuals.

In conclusion behind the disease there is a person trying to communicate and waiting to be understood and heard, more even than be cured.

I also agree that narrative medicine  should be part of the curriculum in the Medicine school,because narrative medicine is medicine practiced with the narrative competence to recognize, absorb, interpret, and honor the stories of illness. This competence lets doctors imagine and enter patients' worlds, represent complex events or situations so as to understand them, and reflect on their own experiences in caring for the sick.

Narrative Medicine is essential for improving the relationship between health worker and patient. That's why it should really be integrated in schools and achieved by everyone who wants to interracte with people and theirs diseases. Altough only by practice it can be really assumed, it is important to be studied and well understood even before the contact with the patient.
