Community of Practice

monthly narrative medicine workshops

squiggle-cop-facilitate

Join us for our regular Community of Practice. These informal gatherings are open to all. Together, we develop our narrative skills—the ability to listen, absorb, and be moved to action by stories of illness and wellness. Events are held monthly in Portland and Seattle. We gather to read a short text, discuss, write in response, and share, if we choose. All participants need to bring is a pen and paper.

Role Roller Coasters

People on a healthcare team often inhabit multiple roles, both professional and personal. One of these roles may be mother, father, parent. How does being a parent, or an adult child caregiving for a parent, impact us as patients, doctors, nurses, and other members of a healthcare team as we navigate the experience of providing and receiving care? Join Drs. Mary Pan and Elizabeth Lahti to read, write, and discuss what it means to balance these different roles. All are welcome.

Facilitator Bio

Elizabeth Lahti, MD, is the Director of Narrative Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine and co-founded the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative.

Mary Pan, MD, is a family medicine physician and writer with training in global health and narrative medicine. When not writing or staving off wanderlust, she can be found jogging in the rain. She lives in Seattle with her husband and three young children.

Invitation to Facilitate

A rotating group of facilitators create and lead our monthly workshops. Each focuses on a specific skill or thematic exploration that expands our narrative medicine practice and all come with individual interests and a unique point of view. If you’d like to lead a workshop, we’d love to hear from you!

The Community of Practice has been meeting mostly monthly since February 2017. Check out our archives to learn more about what we’ve done together.
