A narrative practice within healthcare promotes a critical and skilled attention to people's narratives in the healthcare setting and encourages creativity and reflection. The aim of the network is to investigate and connect the fields of the humanities and science and to reinforce the application of narrative competencies in the way healthcare is delivered and how to support healing.
