Who Tells Your Story? Using Narrative to Build Community, Define Purpose and Foster Agency
Presented by Liz Métraux, CEO of Women Writers in Medicine
 
Healthcare, as an industry, is infused with stories: stories patients tell you when you take a history; stories told by the human body, stories that you experience as a clinician. Many of these stories follow a familiar script: loss, burnout, resilience, and redemption. In this session, we explore how our stories shape our behaviors, perspectives, and journeys. In an age of burnout and trauma, we'll question those narratives as we endeavor to rewrite stories for clinicians and their patients that are grounded in agency, equity, and self-determination.
