On episode 194 of The Nurse Keith Show, I talk medical improv, communication, and teamwork with my dear friend and colleague, Beth Boynton, RN, MS. We also share some good laughs along the way.

Beth Boynton, RN, MS is a nurse consultant and author specializing in respectful communication, collaboration, and culture in healthcare and other businesses. Her books, blogs, videos, and other publications build on the idea that respect for self and others is essential for healthy relationships, teams, cultures, and all human systems. In healthcare, respect is critical for safe, compassionate care of patients and families and for the wellbeing of the workforce. Beth is a pioneer in developing Medical Improv as an experiential teaching strategy for skills associated with emotional intelligence and communication. She is the founder of Boynton Improv Education, LLC, the author of 3 books on communication, the creator of the Teach Medical Improv train the trainer ebook series, and a member of the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies Education Team.
