Abstract

Inspired by some literary references, the essay aims at outlining the main features of narrative medicine, such as the development of the cultural trend that suggests a constructive dialogue between medicine and literature. Specifically, the author attempts to define the differences in approach and the overlaps between Narrative Based and Evidence Based Medicine. Under this perspective, the work seeks to illustrate what kind of contribution narrative medicine may offer to the debate concerning some key aspects of the medical liability field, in particular with regards to the contents of medical guidelines and patients’ informed consent. Thus, the paper explains how the narrative approach to medical practice could raise the quality standards of the health care service by means of driving toward a full therapeutic alliance between physicians and patients. Among the positive aspects of such a trend, the author highlights how the narrative method put a brake on the spread of medical practitioners’ defensive practices.
