At this special JADPRO Live evening event, we invite you to share that story about a real experience from your life that contributed to why you are the advanced practitioner you are today.
Tell us your story of how you got started in oncology. Describe a defining moment in your career. Or, share your story about a mistake, a success, or a surprising turn of events you experienced at your practice. Don't be afraid to be honest about your grief and triumphs. Most importantly, we want to hear your side of the story and celebrate the passion it takes to be an advanced practitioner.
Here are some tips for planning your story.
|Do be truthful about funny, embarassing, or tragic events in your story||Don't make up any part of your story
(Although it is recommended that you change patient and colleague names)
|Do keep your tone conversational and casual||Don't speak as if you’re giving a lecture|
|Do include specifics||Don't be vague|
|Do tell us your unique, inner monologue. What was going through your head at that time?||Don't simply recount a timeline of events|
|Do be vulnerable and show emotion while telling your story||Don't tell a story about something you don't feel strongly about|
Here are some prompts to get you started on thinking what you'd like to propose for your story
Storytellers will be selected and notified by mid-September.
