I’ve just posted Episode 3 of my new podcast, “The Power of the Patient.” Click on over, and catch up on Episodes 1 and 2, if you’re new here. Here it is: What Everyone Should Know About Getting the Best Care, with Dr. Danny Sands.
At last! Been waiting months to do this. The deservedly famous Dr. Danny Sands, one of the pioneers of patient partnerships and the whole e-patient movement, shares his perspective in two ways:
- First, after he and I got a standing ovation for our shared speech at the Better Health convention in Hartford, we sat down and I asked him, “Of all the things you’ve encountered, what advice do you think everyone should understand about getting the best available care for themselves and their families?” He packs years of advice into ten minutes.
- Then, at the similar “What’s The Fix?” event in Texas last month, we recreated two of my actual appointments – one just before my near-fatal cancer diagnosis (a routine physical) and one just after, discussing how to be involved in my case. Here are excerpts from that lecture. (You can see video of the whole 95 minutes on the What’sTheFix site.)
I’ll come back later and add links and “crib sheet” notes from this episode, but I want to get this out the door before the weekend.
