On July 13, 2015, Molly was a panelist at Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, Nebraska, discussing humanities in medicine. She joined poet Steve Langan and Dr. Charlie Youngblood to share experiences in medical humanities and encourage the audience to consider these examples as possible models for their future creative and professional work. Medical humanities is an emerging field, in healthcare institutions and academic settings, and beyond. A branch of medical humanities is commonly referred to as “narrative medicine” (or “literature and medicine”). While there is no current standard definition of the work, leaders of the Columbia University Narrative Medicine program, pioneers in the field, provide this introduction to their longstanding Narrative Medicine program: The care of the sick unfolds in stories. The effective practice of healthcare requires the ability to recognize, absorb, interpret, and act on the stories and plights of others. Medicine practiced with narrative competence is a model for humane and effective medical practice. It addresses the need of patients and caregivers to voice their experience, to be heard and to be valued, and it acknowledges the power of narrative to change the way care is given and received.
