This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Elaine is on a mission to change the world...one conversation at a time. In her intimate talk, Dr. Meyer draws on both professional and personal experience to illustrate the profound gaps in healthcare communication and how to close them.
Dr. Elaine C. Meyer is the co-founder and director of the Institute for Professionalism and Ethical Practice (www.ipepweb.org) at Boston Children's Hospital and an Associate Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. The first of its kind, IPEP has trained thousands of health care practitioners across the Harvard teaching hospitals and the globe in the relational and communication competencies essential to conducting challenging conversations.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
