Who Is Using The I’m Here Movement?

Hundreds of hospitals and health care associations have experienced Marcus Engel’s story of “I’m Here.” Scores of nursing and allied health colleges use, “I’m Here: Compassionate Communication in Patient Care” to teach the “soft skills” of health care. “The Other End of the Stethoscope: 33 Insights for Excellent Patient Care” is another book by Marcus being utilized to help generate empathy and understanding about the patient/family experience. The following are some of the organizations and educational programs that have been touched by Marcus’ words:

  • Columbia University College of Nursing
  • Barnes-Jewish Hospital – St. Louis, MO
  • Mankato State University
  • Linnfield College – Portland, OR
  • Adventist Health Care/Florida Hospitals
  • Emergency Nurses Association
  • Kettering Health Care
  • University of Arkansas – Little Rock
  • Wake Med
  • Wayne State University
  • and many, many more!

Together, with the use of those two little words, we can change the culture of health care… worldwide!
