Narrative Medicine

COVID-19 Alert

CFD`s primary concern is the health and safety of its staff, faculty and community as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. After much consultation and on the advice of our federal and provincial governments, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone all in person programming until further notice.

We are continuing to host our BPER rounds virtually and are accepting registrations for our fall programs.

We will continue to keep you updated as we navigate this uncertain time.

CFD is pleased to share a list of resources for virtual teaching and learning. This list includes quick tips and technological tools to get started with virtual teaching and education. Virtual Teaching & Learning

Reading, Writing, and Reflecting in Clinical Practice, Teaching, and Self-Care

This program will introduce the theory and practice of Narrative Medicine through a variety of practical activities and discussion. Participants will be guided through in-class exercises in close reading, close listening, and creative and reflective writing. Sessions will include an ongoing discussion on the ways that healthcare practice can be informed by narrative medicine and the relationship between the creative and healing arts, as well as the ethical questions raised by narratively-informed approaches.

More advanced elements of the art of writing will be introduced as the course proceeds.

This new program consists of seven 2.5-hour sessions and will require in-between-session homework and reading.

There is an associated registration fee of $700. A maximum of 17 participants will be accepted into the program on a first come-first serve basis.
