We are excited to announce that Dr. Alexie Puran's article: "My six-word story: Power to reconnect and connect", has been published in the 2020 Special Issue of Patient Experience Journal (PXJ).

This special issue includes 32 articles focused on sustaining human experience in the face of COVID-19.

"My Six-Word Story is an innovative activity supporting the well-being of those on the frontline providing care to COVID-19 patients. Six words have the power to reconnect us to our why and connect each other as a community.

The six-word stories shared by the staff of the Pediatric Emergency Department were creative, meaningful and inspirational. The staff’s testimonials support the goals achieved of the project in building resiliency and supporting their well-being.

The staff were invited to submit six-word stories on their inspiration in choosing a career in medicine.

Everyone has a story. Let’s share are our six-word stories, reconnect with our purpose and connect our human experiences".
