Patient Education Easel

The Patient Education team at Boston Scientific hired Carolyn to design an interactive education tool cardiologists and electrophysiologists could use while meeting with patients.

The free-standing binder featured dry-erase pages that could be combined and written on. This allowed the physician to show the exact ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator) and lead combination they were recommending. The tool helped patients visualize the procedure, understand proposed ICD and lead position, and facilitated thoughtful discussion about the patient’s healthcare choices.
