Now, more than ever before, the patient is not just the recipient of healthcare, but MUST accept a share of the responsibility in the partnership with the physician by actively participating in the process!

The passive patient accepts status quo, accepts what they are “given”, and lives with it!  The consequence?  We have become the most obese nation in the world, we are dying an average of 8 years younger than we did ten years ago, the quality of our healthcare is the lowest of other industrialized nations. The health status of the “average” American is embarrassing!  

The active patient must participate in the process of healthcare, doing their part to optimize personal quality of health!  This is PARTICULARLY true for patients presenting with history of acquired brain injury, or other neurological diseases and disorders. The brain regulations everything the body does, including our immune system, and all functional capacity!  Only with optimal nutrition, good health behavior, and accepting personal responsibility can your body achieve optimal recovery, maintain levels of performance, and good health, facilitating your personal goals and goals for your relationships, spouse, family, employment, etc.The choice is yours to make!

Host David E. Nilsson Ph.D. ABPP/CN: A board certified Clinical Neuropsychologist having practiced more than 35 years, focusing his clinical practice on infants/toddlers, children,and adolescents. Roughly a year ago, Dr. Nilsson sustained a brain injury, as a result of complications from surgery for a torn rotator cuff. Initially the brain injury was not obvious, but he presented with a constellation of predictable (and some less predictable) neurocognitive/neurobehavioral consequences of his injury. As a result, he has not been able to return to his practice.
