Reviewer's comments on the document:
It is true that we have no direct access to the experience of others. We can ask directly or explicitly, but we tend to know more about the experience through the stories they tell us about what has happened to others or her around. The narrative strategy is a way whereby experience is represented and reported. Events are represented by a significant and coherent order, and activities and events are described with experiences associated with a significance that brings them sense to those affected.2 . From there, that each patient shows us his symbolic world through a specific story. Allowing nursing inform and detect the experiences or events which the patient from the present and the projection of their activities and experiences into the future, organizing their desires and strategies teleológicamente, heading for imaginary end or ways to experience their lives or activities seek to achieve. The experience and social activities have, therefore, a complex relationship with the stories that concern.
