After a tough fortnight at work I decided to change things up a bit at our Multi-disciplinary team meeting this morning.
We’ve been using an iPad to take notes from the meeting for a while now, and today I tried to make it a more multi-media affair.
As well as recording the patients’ stories I also tried to match each of them to an appropriate piece of music.
The rather diverse playlist and patient list eventually became:
Tammy Wynette – Stand by your man – after discussing a man whose ex-wife had returned to look after him.
Imagine Dragons – Radioactive – the correct pronunciation of a patient’s surname.
Avril Lavigne – Complicated – a patient’s complex family dynamic.
The Black Eyed Peas – Where Is The Love – a patient’s long-term relationship with their spouse.
Alicia Keys – Falling – a patient who had repeatedly been falling…over.
Bob Dylan – Blowin’ in the Wind – a patient with malignant bowel obstruction who had started passing flatus.
