About the network

A steering group consisting of members from the Nordic countries is responsible for coordinating the Nordic Network for Narratives in Medicine. The network also has an advisory board.

The steering group meets a couple of times each year and decides on the structure and content of network meetings, joint research, teaching and/or collaboration initiatives. The steering group also appoints a coordinator, who has the main responsibility for the network's outreach communication, such as web pages and newsletters.
