Digital Life Stories (combinations of personal photos, images and music, set into storyline order and burnt onto a digital device) can help to promote better person-centred care by quickly and engagingly informing the professional of our clients' true character - which can so easily become overlooked when the patient is very sick.

Chris--great article and typical GEHC methodology.   However, I would bet from the responses that there was not a single psychiatrist  or psychological clinician among those 'healthcare professionals'.  Behavioral health is #3--tied with cancer care--and fastest growing in terms of spend (AHRQ 2006--can't find stats any later).  When are we going to stop treating mental health professionals, particularly the MDs, like second-class citizens?

 @deetelecare I bet there was a mental health professional in the room, though underrepresented by those figures. I have a particular POV on MDs of all stripes and their current status in healthcare (but that's another post for another day).
