An increasing reliance on nonhuman technologies leads to an impersonal and calculating medical care system, letting medical care professionals and specialists not care much about patients’ human experiences and hence leading to a decline in the quality of medical care. Patients lose personal contact with their doctors and other medical care professionals. Failing to understand patients’ perspectives would lead to communication problems among physicians, medical care professionals, patients, and patients’ families. However, the communication problems may be bridged by narrative medicine literature study. In the study, narrative medicine literature and interdisciplinary cooperative learning through the internet learning system were promoted to foresee a more humanizing medical care.
