Patient Experience Story Hour (sign-up required, refreshments served)

Monday, August 19, 2019, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Northstar Ballroom

See Patient and Family Panel for more details.


Join us for a special night. Tell us your story at the first (annual) Nexus Story Night.

Everyone has a story to tell. Each Nexus Summit attendee has a memorable experience about how our lives are interacting with the health care world. Some stories give great insight into our passion for team-based care and our commitment to improve outcomes for patients.  Other stories fuel our drive to understand the times that all that teamwork just didn’t work out as intended.

The Theme of the Night:

“When did team based healthcare work well for you,
or when did it all go to hell?”

Join us for an evening of community-building as you and your colleagues share and listen to personal stories about when team based healthcare worked for you, or when it all went to hell.  The setting will be a small stage venue with a single microphone.

Light snacks will be provided and a cash bar will be available.


Storytelling Guidelines:

Our goal is to share as many stories as we can in the time we have (1.5 hours). Each storyteller will have 6 minutes to tell their story. It’s important to plan your story out ahead of time so you can share your experiences.

Stories don’t need to be memorized, but you should have a general idea about what story you want to tell and the key ideas. It is okay to bring notes, but try not to just read your story. We think you’ll do better just telling your story as if you are talking to a few of your close friends, in a hotel ballroom, as we all tend to do.

We want to hear about your experiences, so be brave and grab a mic. We look forward to hearing your stories both funny, positive, and heartwarming, and those that might be a little more difficult. All of these stories help us navigate our human experience.


Sign up to be a story teller:

Because we have limited time, we are asking storytellers to sign up in advance. If there is space, we will accept additional story tellers at the Registration Desk until 4:00 p.m. on Monday, August 19. If time permits we can also accept walk-ons the evening of the event.

Check back often for additional updates as the date approaches.
