Below I posted video of my speech at TEDx in the Netherlands. Throughout the day, Dutch medical magazine Medisch Contact interviewed speakers after their talks. Journalist and moderator Henk Maassen clearly knows his stuff – all his questions were relevant and meaningful.
I quite like where this interview went – everything from the nature of this work to its parallels with social movements from the Sixties and beyond. Thanks so much to TEDx and to Medisch Contact for doing this and making the videos freely available!
Specifically, this TEDx event was organized by Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre. (Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands; in that country, “UMCs” are equivalent to America’s AMCs (academic medical centers).)
- In the interview, around minute 2:30 there’s party noise – the people in the hallway didn’t know there was taping going on.)
- Here’s the Wikipedia page on Medisch Contact, translated using Google Translate.

E-Patient Dave: I am thoroughly impressed by the two video documents you recently produced: your speech and then your subsequent interview at TEDx Maastricht. You are really hitting your stride in presenting the information in a coherant, organized, thoughtful yet humorous manner. You are saying what I have learned to be true in the world of Patient/medical profession and are offering some real insight and solutions as to what is necessary to move the culture in the right direction. Keep up the great work and I, for one, am happy we have you in this world.

And I’m happy we have you, Richard! (All, he’s got a more amazing kidney cancer story than I do. Worse situation and more remarkable comeback – repeatedly!)

Great interview. Thank you for changing public expectations, and for supporting those of us who want to be “good” at HHS–we can’t do it without you and other engaged consumer/e-patients!
