Listening to and letting pain speak: a qualitative perspective
Qualitative research invites opportunities for people to describe through their metaphors, symbols, and language a means in which to interpret their pain and reinterpret their new lived experiences. The patient and family all live with pain and only have their pain narratives to confront and understand the quantifiable discipline of medicine. Patient and family narratives act to retain meaning within the lived pained experience. These narratives add meaning to the person as a stay against only having a clinical-pathological understanding of what is happening to their body and as a person. Here we can know and understand the pathology of the pain while also being mindful of suffering. Listening to pain opens-up to the possibility that much can be learned through multiple expressions of the pain narrative. This presentation on qualitative research provides an invitation to learn how we might articulate and listen to pain carefully, differently.
