READ FULL TRANSCRIPT

You’re Invited!

Join us Friday 10/30 for our bi-weekly Empowered #patientchat on twitter. We will be talking about medical devices, dignity and independence with our special guest.

Devices for Dignity is a not-for-profit organization based within the NHS in the UK. They bring patients, carers, academics, engineers, doctors and nurses together with industry to develop innovative medical devices to help preserve or re-establish people’s dignity and independence. This year they hosted My Dignity Means: A Patient-led Event and continue to gather input from patients.

Guiding our discussion will be:

T1: What does the term dignity mean to you in the health setting? What factors add to your sense of dignity? #mydignitymeans

T2: How are dignity and independence related? Where do patients and caregivers find out about devices and apps that can help?

T3: Sleep and pain control emerged as issues during a #MyDignityMeans patient-led event. What are your experiences & tips here?

T4: Exercise is often part of the doctor’s recommendations. Have you found devices that help in making that part of your daily routine?

T5: What practices, resources and devices would help improve dignity in healthcare? From small/practical to bigger picture?
