This session emphasizes the importance of reflective narratives in obtaining perspectives and maybe changing your own. The use of narratives has been shown to increase resiliency, prevent the loss of empathy, increase cultural sensitivity and highlight cultural diversity. Using different narrative skills, such as reading, listening, writing, and sharing, we will demonstrate a greater understanding of human expression. This is especially important as we care for a more diverse population often from other nations and cultures, be it in our own backyard or in other countries. Using stories of our past experiences will allow us to look towards the future with a greater confidence and empathy.
 
Objectives for Discussion:
1. To use narratives in highlighting patient provider skills that are geared toward improving learner competencies and skills, thereby improving patient care.
2. Allowing providers to revisit challenging and educational patient experiences and increase resilience and well being.
