Will you share your experience to help another patient?

I'm the director of patient advocacy for Emmi Solutions, a company that makes online patient education programs for people who will be having surgery for all types of medical conditions, including patients who will have ICD's and pacemakers. We will also be producing programs in the near future on atrial fibrillation and coagulation management therapy.

We talk with patients directly about their experience, and ask patients to watch our programs and provide feedback because we want to make sure that our programs address what patients actually experience (and not just what the doctor says!).

Will you share your experience with us? We're looking for patients who will work with our medical writer to provide feedback on the existing ICD and pacemaker programs that we have. If you would like to help, please e-mail me with your contact information.

Patients who review programs and provide feedback receive a thank you gift to show our appreciation for your feedback.

Thanks!

If not to late I'd be happy to help with your study. I'm a 55 year old male who just received a medtronic concerto icd, after 4 years with a guidant pacemaker.
