All too often, medical and nursing conferences dedicate their entire agenda to clinical research, as they focus on providing their attendees with the latest studies from their field's thought leaders. While research is important, these agendas ignore the true reason why their attendees began a career in medicine; to help those who are ill, to feel a deep connection and to know they played a major role in someone's life when that person needed compassion and care the most.
As a two-time heart transplant recipient and first-time kidney transplant recipient who spent 70 days in the Intensive Care Unit waiting for the gift of life, Bill knows all about the importance of individualized patient care and how truly special the patient-nurse and patient-physician bond is to the mental state of a critically ill individual.
Bill’s message is one of both gratitude and education. Bill uses his story to highlight situations where a medical professional did something unique (something that is not in a textbook) that lifted his spirits and helped keep him alive while he waited in the hospital for the double transplant and a second chance at life.
Bill's presentation highlights the importance of the medical profession, while Bill’s story serves as a testament to the power of modern-day medicine. Nurses and physicians of all specialties will be able to connect with Bill’s awe-inspiring journey.
