Why are sketchnotes becoming important in healthcare? There are many benefits in being able to do your sketchnotes:

  • Healthcare is demanding. There are so many polices, procedures and information to process. Using sketchnotes lets you condense all that information into the meaningful points that matter
  • Visual summary representations have been proven to work in helping you remember key points.
  • Drawing your own sketchnotes can help you and others in remembering key things you should do that can help reduce things like the risk of falls, pressure ulcers or sepsis
  • They are easy to understand, straight to the point and memorable
  • They can be used to help communicate better with service users. Language used is so important when communicating with people where English might not be their first language, not able to read or they have a health problem

Worried about whether you are creative? Don’t worry! Sketchnotes are not about being artistic

I have been amazed at how I can actually do sketchnotes! With the help of Sonia’s workshops I have been inspired to keep going with sketchnotes and explore creativity. I want to say thank you for all the help she has given and how calming, easy and insightful her tips and experience were. I can’t wait to go back and share with my colleagues!

I can’t believe how easy it is to do sketchnotes once you know the basics. Sonia’s online class has been so helpful to us during a difficult time, we have been able to use sketchnotes to share our experience and learning of the changes that have happened over the past year. The tips were easy to follow and with Sonia’s guidance I found it so easy to do. Thank you!
