An Introduction to Video Reflexive Ethnography (VRE) in Health Care

Observing patients and care providers through the lens of a video camera can provide insights that help us bridge gaps in health care and the way people experience health care.

In "An Introduction to Video Reflexive Ethnography (VRE) in Health Care," you will learn how you can use VRE to capture complexities in health care delivery and develop ways to improve the experience of health care from the “bottom up.”

You will learn about the theoretical, philosophical and methodological underpinnings of video reflexive ethnography. Together with peers and leaders in the science, you will learn practical ways to implement VRE into your practice-improvement and health care delivery research program.

Where: Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota

When: June 28-30, 2018
