I feel for broadcasters…

Oh my, here I am with my communications colleague Judith Dyck at the Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s Virtual Forum on November 1.

It was super to co-present about communications in health with Judith, who is an eloquent and seasoned public speaker.

I have to admit that I now have empathy for broadcasters, who have to present to a camera, not to an audience.  I realized how much I rely on my audience for energy – in fact, I feed off of that energy, and adjust my speaking notes according to their response.  A camera does not give such feedback!

I was very impressed with the depth of organizing of this event, which was broadcast live around the world.  Kudos to CPSI, and to the health professionals that participated in the Forum, for their commitment to making health environments safer for patients and families.
