What is the I’M HERE MOVEMENT?

The I’M HERE MOVEMENT is a 501-(C)3 non for profit which is changing the culture of care through the use of two little words. It is a global effort to help health care professionals embrace the power they have to comfort patients by simply being present.

Patients are vulnerable, scared, worried and sicker than ever. Sometimes, the only thing (and the best thing) a health care pro can do is simply reassure the patient with the words “I’m here,” telling the patient that he or she is not alone.

With the Jennifer story, “I’M HERE: Compassionate Communication in Patient Care” book and the I’M HERE wristbands, the goal of the I’M HERE MOVEMENT is to give health care pros this constant reminder how important those words and presence are for patients and families.
