Project "Born before the time" presented in Rome: Narrative Medicine and the stories of families living a preterm birth
The project provided for the collection of stories of families living a preterm birth, and the consequent care pathway. The aim was that of collect, through narratives, the sparks relative to experiences, needs, expectations emerging from the pathway, in order to identify the most adequate intervention rooms from a management and supportive point of view.
Through narratives, parents and families of premature babies could give a precious evidence of their experiences, contributing to define the state of art of management of care pathways for preterm births in Italy.
Our wish is to have done the groundwork, through an accurate and expert reading of narratives, for starting a process of reorganization of services in order to improve the life quality of involved families.
The project was presented in Rome, at the Health Ministry, on 16th September 2015.
Among the several articles (in italian) published about it, we recommend:
