John Launer’s articles on CIC

As one of the originators of CIC, John Launer has published many articles related to the narrative-based practice in his monthly column ‘On Reflection’ in the Postgraduate Medical Journal. John is currently compiling a book of these, due to be published in 2021 by CRC Press with the title:  Reflective Practice in Medicine, Medical Education and Multi-Professional Healthcare. Here is a selection of the articles that will appear in it. At the end of the list are three earlier articles he published in QJM, an international medical journal.
