Dave and Danny on the Big Screen

First published 2/22/11 on [Not] Running A Hospital

Regular readers may recall that I wrote about a grand rounds presentation by Dr. Danny Sands and e-Patient Dave deBronkart. It was an impressive and moving exposition about the power of patient involvement in the delivery of health care.

Dave and Danny did a reprise of this session at the IHI Annual Forum in December, and IHI has generously made it available for public viewing. I offer it here for you. It is about an hour long, but well worth your time. (You can play it in the background while you catch up on the long weekend’s emails today!)

Danny and Dave are now both active in the Society for Participatory Medicine, spreading the word and publishing research in support of “a cooperative model of health care that encourages and expects active involvement by all connected parties (patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, etc.) as integral to the full continuum of care.”
