The article examines the opportunities for change in new media narratives. In this case new media become tools calling for "patient liberation". A case-based qualitative study was devel-oped and a phenomenological-interpretative-anthropological narrative-based medical approach was applied to examine written narrations produced online by patients, to gain insights into their experiences of illness and underlying socio-cultural factors. We found that online narra-tive played a significant role leading to greater awareness and individual empowerment of pa-tients, and fostering mutual support and the development of community actions at the collec-tive level.
Keywords: Narrative-based medicine; communication; new media; health; multiple sclerosis; doctor-patient relationship.
