L'incontro tra la persona ammalata e il professionista sanitario inizia quasi sempre con un racconto. Ciò consente un'operazione di interpretazione per ricavare informazioni significative. Questo concetto pone l'attenzione sull'importanza dei significati soggettivi che danno il senso dell'esistere. Su questi significati la persona struttura la sua vita e la sua esperienza di malattia assieme al professionista sanitario per costruire un quadro clinico o assistenziale. La narrazione è un esempio di come le persone strutturano linguisticamente il loro mondo e ne ricostruiscono il senso: questo è il percorso per delineare la storia di malattia. In questo libro si propone un metodo che fornisce strumenti di particolare interesse per la scienza infermieristica. Responsabile del Progetto Editoriale: Simone Gussoni.
