MR. Lee Tomlinson

Mr. Lee Tomlinson
Ted speaker on Compassion in Healthcare

The life’s work of “Patient Lee” is to motivate medical professionals to reinstate compassionate C.A.R.E. at the forefront of contemporary
medicine in order to benefit their patients, coworkers, the financial health of their hospitals, and perhaps most significantly, themselves.
Finding his goal was anything but simple. “Patient Lee,” an award winning television producer, owner of a film studio, former professional athlete,
and speaker for TED, is still alive today thanks to a lifetime of consistent, incredibly successful medical care and profoundly caring attention.

The goal of this movement is to encourage America’s 12.5 million healthcare professionals to rediscover the compassion that initially
drew them to the field of medicine, and to then be inspired to step up their efforts to show even more compassion
than before in order to better heal their patients, coworkers, and the world, but most importantly, themselves.

Mrs. Laurin Mooney

Founder of SpeakingIN, RN MS

As a result of her life experiences as an ED nurse, Off-Shift Administrative/Clinical Supervisor, and patient advocate for family members, she began seeking for the answers to the following two questions: “How can it be that we are harming the same folks we want to help?” as well as “What must change if we are to achieve the desired results?” She started out as a legal nurse consultant. But she knew straight away that Ishe wanted to concentrate on learning how to halt or avoid harm in real time. A healthcare corporate liability expert witness with a strong focus on safety then gave her advice.

He asked her to put the 353 examples he had worked on over the course of 35 years into a database because he knew there were significant insights there. My life was impacted by the meeting. The occurrences followed a pattern that recurred frequently. There were unmistakably human dynamics as well as systemic flaws. Rather than seeing them as failures of mankind, she recognised their ability to generate safety. She later discovered HRO by examining other industries’ approach to safety in difficult, high-risk positions. She quickly realised that HRO places a strong emphasis on human potential to ensure safe, successful outcomes while also addressing the issues that people face in challenging, dynamic work. WOW! She reached out with HRO experts from several industries, and they were happy to have me.

Her unwavering commitment to her career and her coworkers provided her with unparalleled insight into the motivations, pressures, and breaking points of healthcare workers at all levels, particularly those on the front lines.

Dr. Claire’s passion for healthcare quality and improvement led her to work in variety of settings, ranging from top-tier academic medical centres in urban epicenters to severely under-resourced makeshift facilities in developing countries, at all levels of funding, acuity, and geographic/demographic constituency.  Dr. Claire was able to uncover the common threads that plagued teams all around the world, independent of geography or departmental makeup: the detrimental, and fully preventable, repercussions of compassion fatigue, emotional exhaustion, and burnout, thanks to this widely diversified professional landscape.

Michael Retsky (University of Chicago, Ph.D. in Physics) switched careers thirty years ago to work on cancer research. 
He works at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Boston-based Angiogenesis Foundation. 
He is also member of the University College London faculty. 
He spent 12 years on Judah Folkman’s Harvard Medical School staff. 
Retsky is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Bioequivalence and Bioavailability and the Editor-in-Chief of Nature/Springer book on breast cancer due out in 2017. He is co-founder of the Colon Cancer Alliance and serves on its Board of Directors. He has published over 60 publications in the fields 
of physics and cancer. In 1994, he was diagnosed with stage IIIc colon cancer. 
He chose against utilising standard maximum tolerated chemotherapy based on his earlier study on tumour growth and
therapy. Instead, he employed low-dose, long-term therapy with the standard colon cancer medicine 5-fluorouracil, which he delivered daily with portable infusion pump. 
The therapy was non-toxic and appears to have succeeded because he has not relapsed and the risk of relapse has passed. 
In 1996, this was explored with Judah Folkman and Tim Browder, and this therapy was tested in the Folkman lab. 
Browder et al. reported their findings in 2000, and the technique is now known as metronomic chemotherapy. 
Browder et al’s publication from Cancer Research in 2000 is citation classic. 
Because both Folkman and Browder are no longer alive, Retsky (the cancer patient) is the only one who can tell the narrative of 
how metronomic treatment was started.
