Day One Talk: A series of videos to help families
The Project: The idea for this project was born during our filming of our How I Live film when one of the providers we were filming with asked us to create an educational video. This prompted us to think more broadly about how film could be used in global healthcare settings to supplement existing educational material and healthcare provider / patient family discussions. To further explore this idea we collaborated with Irini and Erin Atwood who put research to these ideas. Among other findings, their research showed that in LMICs; healthcare providers have a limited amount of time they can spend with patients and families, and often at the ‘Day One Talk’ when patients and families learn about the diagnosis, they are so overwhelmed that they can’t remember all of the information.
