Bradby, Hannah and Hargreaves, Janet (2009) Narratives in health and social care: truths in context; truths in contest? In: Narrative & Memory Research Group 9th Annual Conference: Narrative, Memory and Ordinary Lives, April 2009, Huddersfield, UK. (Unpublished)

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.
