I’m speaking this morning at the Military Health System conference in Washington. It’s a high-speed panel, with 12 minutes per speaker, so I’m posting here the links to the sites and resources I’ll talk about. (This saves people from scribbling URLs or the frustration of not remembering later … just like getting information in the doctor’s office, eh? Sometimes the Web is useful!)
At bottom is “Let Patients Help” – my 16 minute TEDx talk from Maastricht, in the Netherlands, covering e-patient founder “Doc Tom” Ferguson on self-care, three e-patient stories, and “the e-Patient Rap.” But first, here are the links:
Additional resources I may mention during Q&A:
- Finally, here’s my TEDx talk, making the case for empowering patients with information and encouraging their engagement. As I said on stage today, note that volunteers have added subtitles in 25 languages. I encourage providers everywhere to work at kindling this apparently universal drive. Let patients help heal healthcare – they are the ultimate stakeholder.
