Currently being used at over 40 hospitals with tremendous success in impacting patient, family and staff satisfaction, The Living History Program© is a process for engaging patients to gather and share basic life information. It enables healthcare workers to provide care to the heart and soul of the patient, positively impacting the way we care about and for patients.
A Living History serves as a mechanism to strengthen connections with the people we care for and positively shifts the experience for the patient, family and members of the care delivery team. We believe you understand, appreciate, and ultimately care for patients better in knowing their personal stories.The program teaches organizations how to select and train employees to interview patients and/or families to capture basic life history and turn it into a powerful one-page story. In addition to being a treasured momento for the patient and family, the story becomes a part of the medical record so all who come into contact with the patient have information to make connections on new and exciting levels.
