Brian Boyle: The Ironheart Story – OnDemand Course

Temporarily Unavailable. For additional information please email us at [email protected].

This is a one-hour OnDemand course, originally recorded at ICISF’s 13th World Congress in May 2015.

Brian Boyle tells a personal and emotional story of his fight back from near death after a horrific automobile accident. He focuses on his experience as a patient who, while in a two-month long medically-induced coma, was unable to move or talk to anyone around him, yet he was able to hear, see and feel pain. Join Brian as we explore the nuances of his hospital experience and answer the questions that will have us reflecting upon our own practice and policies.
