This episode is part of a larger program that will run for 3 months: The Rise Of The Patient. (#ROTPt) Click this link for more details on the program There is a movement happening. It is a quiet one however a critical one. Patients are finding their voice and are driving conversations in various arenas that are not necessarily in your traditional healthcare space. The movement has grown significantly since the advent of the social web. In this episode I interview Robert Fraser. Robert has had an impressive career in Nursing. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to interview him on his projects, nursing and technology. Join us for this episode on how nursing and healthcare are being socialized from his perspective. Guest Bio Rob Fraser is a registered nurse and graduate of the Masters of Nursing program from the University of Toronto. In his undergraduate at Ryerson University he fused his interested in professional involvement with his interest in technology by founding Nursing Ideas, a website to connect nursing students with leaders, innovators, and researchers in health care. His desire to contribute to creative solutions to improve healthcare lead to his selection as an inaugural Innovation Fellow for the Health Strategy Innovation Cell, where he worked, as the only nurse, with others from medical, journalism, engineering and policy backgrounds on projects for the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. Last year he was privileged to be invited to join the Canadian Nurses’ Association’s NationalExpert Commission on the future of healthcare in Canada. I search #rotpt for related episodes
