Roundtable: Sharing stories wisely

Thursday, June 2, 2016: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Grand Ballroom (Hilton Portland)
In this Roundtable, we will discuss successful strategies for sharing personal stories in a variety of venues, including talks with legislators, sharing on social media, and speaking at community events. As powerful as narrative advocacy can be to engage and persuade policy-makers, it can and has been misused. We will offer a series of brief case studies, examples of when narrative advocacy has worked well, and instances when it has had negative consequences. We will offer concrete suggestions and resources for incorporating narrative advocacy in the health care work of participants, whether they are health care providers, consumers, health care educators, clinic administrators, or policy makers.
