Exploring the Interpretive and Relational Nature of Clinical Practice

Guest Editor: Nicole Piemonte, Creighton University
Extended Deadline: 01 January 2025

vol 17 image 2_edited_edited.png

Hermeneutics as a philosophical framework emphasizes the interpretive and relational aspects of human experience. This framework is particularly relevant to healthcare, as practitioners engage in the complex task of interpreting patients' stories, symptoms, and experiences to provide the right care for the particular patient before them. Medicine, therefore, emerges not only as an applied science, but also as an interpretive, relational, and narrative practice deeply intertwined with values, emotions, and convictions.

We seek contributions from those within the interdisciplinary heart of hermeneutics, as well as from practitioners across healthcare disciplines.
