ARDEO is a one act play inspired by research and personal narratives of health practitioners and patients at UNC-CH’s North Carolina’s Jaycee Burn Center. From the perspective of scientists and medical providers, the involvement of the dramatic arts represents a unique opportunity to appreciate the meaning of one’s work and to gain new insights and perspectives regarding its relevance. A large part of what we hope to explore is how patients and doctors communicate with each other; how health practitioners communicate with the public; and how theatre artists can be of service to patients, doctors and the larger public. Narrative medicine not only serves the public health sector and works to improve the effectiveness of care, but it also offers as a healing tool for patients in recovery.
