Bringing 3rd Conversation to your organization
A centerpiece of 3rd Conversation is our Spark events; however: as of March 1, 2020 we have paused all in-person events.
However, all interested sites can apply for a spot on our wait list. We typically schedule Spark events months in advance.
Our sense is that post-Coronavirus, the health system will need empathy-building, inspiring opportunities to come together more than ever. We'll be ready.
In the meantime, track our latest work and thinking in our online community. We are working with patients and clinicians to figure out how best we can support this new reality, and we'll post updates there.
More About Spark Events
What is a Spark event? It's a professionally facilitated 3 hour gathering where patients and clinicians explore how reinventing the patient-provider relationship can be a source of power, healing and fulfillment.
3rd Conversation Spark events typically include 12-15 patients and 12-15 clinicians.
In structured pairs, as well as small and whole group discussions, participants identify what could be done to inject more human connection into health care. They gain important insights about each other and have an opportunity to "dream storm" a new future together.
Let us know if you're interested and our team will walk you through the basics. We're also designing a new Spark event to include administrators and leadership, alongside patients and clinicians.
