Human beings are hard-wired to hear and tell stories, and to use stories to communicate complex ideas, emotions, and experiences. Stories teach us values, they emphasize connections and connectedness. Learning to truly listen to your patients’ stories is the essence of narrative medicine. The language of evidence-based medicine is too often complex and opaque. In short, it lacks the narrative elements that tell a story.
