Ya-Huei Wang, Pan-Fu Kao, Hung-Chang Liao
The increased reliance on nonhuman technologies can lead to an impersonal and calculating medical care system in which medical care professionals and specialists do not care enough about patients’ human experiences and the quality of medical care declines. Patients lose personal contact with their doctors and other medical care professionals. Moreover, failing to understand patients’ perspectives can lead to communication problems among physicians, medical care professionals, patients, and patients’ families. However, these communication problems may be bridged by narrative medicine literature through the internet learning system. In this paper, narrative medicine literature and interdisciplinary cooperative learning are promoted to establish more humanizing medical care.
