Talk: #hellomynameis

Dr Kate Granger visited Google's office in Mountain View, CA to discuss her work on the #hellomynameis campaign, whilst facing a terminal illness and continuing her work as a doctor. During a hospital stay in the summer of 2013, she made the stark observation that many staff looking after her did not introduce themselves before delivering care. This felt very wrong to Kate, so encouraged and supported by her husband, she decided to start the #hellomynameis campaign to encourage and remind healthcare staff about the importance of introductions in the delivery of care. During this talk, Kate will speak to the power of social media to drive change in our world and her experiences driving the #hellomynameis campaign.
