One of the types of narrative pieces that seems to do a good job of bringing together patient stories and important health policy/health systems concerns is the 600-800 word op-ed often seen on the NYT Well Blog. The typical construction appears to start off with the story of a patient, and follows with an analysis of why that patient's story/struggle represents a larger issue within the healthcare system that deserves attention. What advice would you give young physicians who are aiming to write more pieces like this? How can they improve the strength of their op-eds?
