ASMEBITESIZE: Patient Narratives in Undergraduate Clinical Education - Continuing the Discussion
Wednesday 9th September 2020, 11:45am

For this session Sir John Ellis Student Prize winner Dr Selina Robertson (Wirral University Teaching Hospital) returned for a follow up discussion to continue the enthralling debate sparked by Selina's work on patient narratives in undergraduate clinical education. She was joined Dr Jayne Garner (Edge Hill University) and Dr Roshni Beeharry (QMUL & GKT Medical School) to chat with Ryan Devlin (JASME Co-Chair).

They explored patient narratives, their limitations, and their potential. When do patient narratives disempower the patients' voice, rather than empower them? What is the perfect narrative to tell - and can a story equally benefit the patient, care-giver and student? Should narrative storytelling replace standard reflections? With an expert panel, and the audience, they explored these questions and more.

An FY1 at Wirral University Teaching Hospital, Selina studied medicine at Liverpool through the foundation degree programme. Prior to this she did degrees at Nottingham and Cambridge.

Her interest in MedEd came through approaching medicine from a background in teaching languages, having previously studied literature and anthropology. It seemed natural to Selina that the starting point for the most important lessons would come from conversations with patients. This lead her to explore patient narratives and was the foundation of her submission.
