A piece of life A piece of my life is online. It’s called a thesis. I went to look at the meaning of this word to better understand how I would create and write this work. I found defining words, such as: affirmation, proposition, work to be defended. The thesis Ethics of the Encounter, defended in December 2018, is first…



How can we create a narrative opportunity for multiple languages to discuss health processes? In the terrain where patients walk in hospitals, their rooms full of equipment and technology that witness these silent experiences. In general, what is narrated by the patient will have a place of scientific record that will be rearticulated within an organized medical expression plan.



My book “Good Blends” was launched in 2003 and is now out of print reissued by Editora MMD by the name of “Ethics of Joy in the hospital context”. Since 2003, many possibilities opened up the world of book publishing : the on-demand publishing and eBook decreased production costs, reverting to the reader a lower cover price and greater agility…



Research: For what and why? About the knowledge generation What motivates the organization to do research? What is the question that guides the need to develop knowledge? It is a question that leads outwards (to show the results of the activity to the world) or inwards (further developing the organization). How does the organization relate to the theme of Knowledge…

We Want to Hear Your Voice

This is one of the stories that @imagemagica helped write. Doctor Anna Bertoldi narrated her vision from the forefront of patient care for Covid-19 and spoke about the emotion of being able to collaborate with the virtual interaction between patients and loved ones.

Connections of Care

What if the anguish of the person that is hospitalized with Covid-19, isolated and restricted from from contact with their family members, living day and night with the uncertainties of the disease, could be alleviated by a virtual visit?

How do we create opportunities for narratives in which multiple languages ​​that talk about health processes participate in the same discussion? Silent experiences are had and kept in the terrain where patients walk in hospitals, and their rooms full of equipment. In general, what is recounted by the patient will have a place of scientific record that will be rearticulated within an organized medical expression plan.

Whispers of life become diagnoses of depression, panic syndromes, and so many others that are now encoded within a time frame relative to the operating logic of medicine, minimizing the perspective of the body as a world map and responding to an operative line of conduct of the disease: consultations, examinations, diagnoses, prescriptions and medications.

So, how can we bring back the strength of patient narratives to the scene of health spaces? How can we make it so that these narratives are able to enter a plane of expression as a way of guiding medical practice as a fundamental principle of healing? How can we provide spaces for patients and professionals to use this relational turf as a place of power to cultivate health? Connecting with each other and yourself through life stories: this is the proposal of Project Voices.

Project Voices is a space for you to recount your experience with an episode of illness, hospitalization, and/or recovery. It’s a space to tell others about your discoveries, learnings, relationships with health professionals, family importance or other themes linked to this moment in your life.

Memory is not an organ that merely recollects facts, with which we intend to fix what has already happened. In our memory, the past changes constantly.

It is a progressive, living, narrative process that differs from data storage. Each account teaches others what they currently think and leads them to learn from others what is thought. This simplicity is its true strength.

We believe that by sharing these themes we will be stimulating discoveries about how to develop health, we will be collaborating with others who are going through similar experiences, and we can inspire the learning of health professionals about the art of meeting and connecting with the patient.

Here are some tips for uploading your video and your VOICE, narrating your experience. A lot has happened throughout this recovery process, hasn’t it?

Tell your story: How it all happened, your relationship with health professionals, the role of your family and friends, the learning and transformations in your daily life, remarkable moments, what strengthened you, and everything else that is alive in your head. But most of all, feel comfortable and welcome. Together we will be offering this rich content – which is not in medical books – as a source of knowledge to promote the “meeting ethics” between health professionals and patients.
