This week’s question is inspired by the forum post, “Neurologists now holding telemedicine/virtual appointments” from March 24, 2020. Post your concerns, questions, or experiences in the comments below or on the original forum entry.
This annual event honors healthcare workers who contribute positive impacts to the patient experience every day.
Of course, these aren’t “everyday” times.
The institute has responded by taking its annual live Patient Experience Conference online this year, planning virtual resources and support to celebrate and re-energize those workers who’ve dedicated their lives to serving patients, families, and their communities.
Only healthcare organizers can attend; this isn’t a public event.
Still, it reminds me of recent efforts by neurologist Aaron Boster to engage people with MS during these times of crisis.
It also speaks to the potential of telemedicine, a kind of “virtual” healthcare practice that could be serving those living with MS in the not-too-distance future (if not already).
The Boster Center for Multiple Sclerosis
Dr. Aaron Boster launched his facility earlier this winter in northern Columbus, Ohio. MS champion and activist Laura Kolaczkowski considers Dr. Boster “a world-world respected authority in the field of multiple sclerosis.”
