Episode 29 of the imPACt podcast - Why Storytelling Matters

“If you just sit and give folks a list of facts, they can debate those facts or try to refute them. They can't debate your story. Because it's your story." - Chris Keck on the imPACt Podcast 

Join me (Vanessa), Becky and Fionna for our conversation with Chris Keck from ImproveCareNow. We discuss storytelling - particularly personal narratives - and why stories matter.


Exploring Fatigue in Pediatric IBD

Pediatric patients with IBD can have challenges with fatigue (feeling tired a lot of the time) and difficulties with sleep. While fatigue and sleep are known to be important factors in supporting optimal psychosocial and medical outcomes in pediatric IBD, it is unknown how these topics are talked about in IBD care with patients.

A new research project aims to learn more about Sleep & Fatigue in Pediatric IBD.


Episode 25 of the imPACt podcast - IBD, Meds, Biologics...Oh My!

Medications and biologic drugs are often a big part of managing IBD. Shira and I (Fionna) were texting about our personal experiences with meds and biologics when we realized others in the IBD community might benefit from being able to listen in on our conversation. So, we decided to make a podcast episode about it!

Episode 22 of the imPACt Podcast - Patient-Centered Care

Join me (Fionna), Shira and Caitlyn as we talk with special podcast guests - Dr. Hilary Michel and Dr. Ashish Patel - about patient-centered care from both the provider and patient perspectives. 

"Knowing what a patient's goals are, what their values are, what's important to them and trying to shape how we take care of that person with those things in mind." - Dr. Michel

"All coming to an agreement on how we want to move forward in that patient and family's care." - Dr. Patel

"It's important that we also know that as owners of our bodies we are also the experts, and I think patient-centered care does a really important job of integrating that." - Shira
