The Institute for Healthcare Improvement will host a free 7 December, 2017 audio “WIHI” program on The (Careful and Kind) Patient Revolution., featuring the Mayo Clinic’s Victor Montori, MD. This Patient Revolution is “a movement based on stories. [It’s] mission is to arm people to tell stories; stories about their lives, stories about their capabilities and limitations, and stories about what risks, benefits and trade-offs look like from their point of view. We want people to tell these stories in exam rooms and hospital rooms, in their communities and in the rooms where decisions get made.” For more information and to register, see http://forms.ihi.org/next-wihi-on-december-7-at-2-pm-et-the-careful-and-kind-patient-revolution.
