Capturing the Impact of a Program
The video has had far-reaching impacts:
- It gave faculty a window into how doctors and nurses practiced medicine in fundamentally different ways after going through the program.
- Program leaders used the video for outreach and showed it to hospital administrators across the country to demonstrate the power of a palliative care program.
- It was used as a recruiting tool for attracting clinicians into the program.
- It raised over $500,000 from individuals and foundations to support the program.
I was struck when I saw the video—how the right question phrased in the right way, in an environment where the person being interviewed feels safe, and the person talking to them is genuinely interested in what they think, and there is time to think and reflect—showed me something I never would have known. The power of those images and those words was broader and more long lasting than I or my colleagues had ever anticipated.
