Bradby, Hannah, Hargreaves, Janet and Robson, Mary (2009) Story in Health and Social Care. Health Care Analysis, 17 (4). pp. 331-344. ISSN 1065-3058

This paper offers a brief consideration of how narrative, in the form of people’s own stories, potentially figures in health and social care provision as part of the impulse towards patient-centred care. The rise of the epistemological legitimacy of patients’ stories is sketched here. The paper draws upon relevant literature and original writing to consider the ways in which stories can mislead as well as illuminate the process of making individual treatment care plans.
