RIPPLE Video – patient experiences

Hot off the press, here is a twenty minute video of the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust RIPPLE Project, introduced by Colin Gelder (who specialises in Asthma, COPD and other Airway Diseases. He also runs the new Community COPD Team.) and nurse Charlotte.

I was lucky enough to be invited to facilitate the early workshops from which emerged the ideas for this project.

The RIPPLE Project is a study we have put together looking at the effects of using Asset based Community Development to address anxiety and social isolation in chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD). – Dr Colin Gelder – Consultant

RIPPLE is an acronym meaning

Respiratory

Innovation

Promoting a

Positive

Life

Experience for COPD patients

After the first five minutes of the video you will hear, first-hand, the personal experiences of some of the community members.

While you watch these amazing accounts of just what the project has done for them, imagine each short story as a narrative fragment, signified (indexed against an appropriate set of parameters) by the teller and plotted on a sensemaker narrative landscape so that you could see the patterns across the community/county/society and drop in on any aspect that attracts your interest.
