Seeing Care Through Our Patients’ Eyes

Dr. Thor Sundt, a Mayo Clinic cardiovascular surgeon, gave a great presentation about a video project our cardiac surgery division did, in which they followed a patient and his family with a video camera through their entire experience. I hope to post some excerpts from his talk in an update, but for now would invite you to check out this video he showed to illustrate the importance of careful observation.

Update: Here are some video highlights of his presentation. The video experiment is at about the 2:30 mark.

Update 2: Here’s a video from Dr. Farris Timimi that gives more background on the “One Voice” program at Mayo Clinic, and the ideas behind it.
