We have a brand-new topic and expert guest that I'm excited to share with you. We're discussing the importance of story and narrative medicine and pain care with physiotherapist, Lissanthea Taylor. I love Lissanthea's work and skillset because she is a triple threat of a physiotherapist who is up to date on the latest pain science and online author who creates meaningful content for people with pain and someone at the forefront of implementing narrative medicine and pain care. She's also the founding editor of an online platform called PainChats.com and managed communications and media for the University of South Australia's Pain Revolution. Lissanthea puts her time between clinical work, helping people overcome pain, teaching narrative medicine to professionals, as well as creating easy to access evidence-based online resources for people in pain.
On this episode, you'll learn all about narrative medicine, why stories matter and are important in pain care, why storytelling has become such a buzzword. What practical things you can do to enhance your ability to hear stories and some of the common misconceptions about the importance of story and healthcare. If you're interested in learning more about narrative medicine, you can visit Lissanthea's website which is called NarrativeRx.com.
