Narrative Discussion Groups

The personal stories published in NIB provide perfect material for Narrative Ethics Discussion groups. Such groups explore the stories of patients and caregivers to increase awareness of needs, acknowledge suffering, and explore opportunities to improve the way we provide care. NIB has collaborated with the Center for Clinical and Research Ethics at Washington University and Arthur Frank to develop materials individuals can use to facilitate Narrative Ethics Discussion groups.

Readings for Discussion Groups: Story Excerpts on Topics in Healthcare Ethics

Exploring Bias and Stigma in the Care of Patients, edited by Jessica Mozersky and Heidi Walsh

Additionally, each narrative symposium published as an open-access NIB VOICES edition is accompanied by a teaching guide that provides reflection question for each story. These guides are ideal for groups that wish to explore the specific topic of a symposium. Please visit the VOICES webpage to access these symposia and teaching guides.
