Narrative Medicine ISTUD

Welcome to

This site wants to gather the ancient structure of agora, the Greek word indicating the square where experts and common citizens can meet to exchange thoughts, experiences, and project on Narrative Medicine. wants to be a dynamic and brave (precisely not agoraphobic) community in collecting and reporting narratives of patients, physicians, and all healthcare professionals dedicating themselves to create health and heal disease.


“Often patients suffer by different things from those indicated on clinical chart. If we think about that, many of their sufferings could be soothed”.

Florence Nightingale

For us too, clinical anamnesis is not sufficient to take care of a person. We need careful and deep listening for a social anamnesis. And unconditioned acceptance of the person.
