Hiring a Local vs. Non-Local Graphic Recorder

 

Tanya Gadsby is Fuselight’s Creative Director and Graphic Facilitator.

 

Graphic recording is a growing industry. Although it’s been in use since the 1960s, in the last 15 years there has been an explosion of graphic recorders taking up the pen. Our international membership organization, the IFVP, has a global map of graphic recorders that’s growing steadily year-to-year:

Many graphic recorders travel long distances for conferences. Often it’s because we have a specific expertise, way of working, or a long-standing relationship with the client. But since there are more and more graphic recorders around the world, is travel always necessary? Beyond cost savings, what value can a local graphic recorder deliver compared to a non-local graphic recorder?

Patient Journey Mapping: Tips for Creating a Safe Space

Patient journey mapping is the plotting of patient experiences to understand the gaps, successes, and challenges in a health care journey.

Patients are the only people who experience all aspects of care – from hospital, to community, to specialists, to home, and transitions in between. The patient voice should be central when making sustainable and meaningful improvements to the health system, and journey mapping is a tool for facilitating a better understanding of what is working or not working.

There is no “right way” to journey map. However, most journey mapping is done in face-to-face sessions: with an individual patient, in a group setting with patients who have been through similar journeys, or a group of patients and clinicians.
