“Improvoscopy:  Serious Play for Safe Care”  Indiegogo Campaign Update
Improvoscopy Logo draft with words G9Hoping to launch by Mid February and have been pretty focused on developing “Pitch Video” which is ALMOST ready!  Getting the message out about this exciting online library that healthcare professionals can use to teach fundamental med improv activities to ALL staff in ALL organizations is something I feel very passionate about.  If I can get funding for the process, the resources will be free!  This will help to decrease errors, work-related injuries, and bullying or other disruptive behaviors and cultures.  So yeah, it is a big deal!   And I’m told the first 12-30 seconds of your “Pitch Video” has to really grab viewers!  I started out with 5 min and it is now down to about 2!  I hope you will stay tuned and help me with this.
