LivingStories: conducting life narrative interviews

Novant Health is looking for volunteers to become certified life narrative interviewers for our LivingStories program. 

LivingStories offers patients in the hospital setting the opportunity to have a 1:1 private life narrative interview with a volunteer. Volunteers help patients regain a positive outlook and find strengths and coping skills to help them face their medical diagnosis, life changes or end-of-life. Interviews may be recorded and given to the patient on CD as a legacy gift. 

Training for LivingStories takes place over 3 days, after which participants are awarded a certificate and commit to volunteer shifts during which they will round on patients to offer interviews. 

Professionalism and privacy compliance are key, as are great listening skills and the ability to guide a conversation based on the tools given during training. Basic computer skills and ability to operate simple technology also needed.
