    Danny, I love what you are doing here-fostering a collaborative approach to health care where the patient plays a key role in the decisions about care. Recently I have become interested in Narrative Medicine which claims that health care providers need to have “narrative competence- defined as the ability to acknowledge, absorb, interpret and act on the stories stories and plights of others.” This hcp-patient collaboration becomes the spiritual core of healing. When I read your posts, I am reminded of this. What do you think?
