La malattia nella narrazione del medico e del paziente


This work deals with the relationships which are established between patient and doctor, especially in clinical situations characterized by serious pathologies with uncertain outcomes. Both those who treat and those who are treated create “disease stories”, but each one pursues different goals and often uses not mutually intelligible languages, thus increasing the patient’s feeling of solitude and abandonment. Despite the success of biomedicine and evidence-based medicine, aiming to cure the disease, it is remarked the little attention to how the disease is perceived may lead patients to narrate their illness experience. Somewhere else, through different ways of communication, this narrative is welcomed and shared.
