Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.

    e-Patient Dave says "Let Patients Help!"

    in Health

    Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient.  An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.  


    In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!


    When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.


    In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.


    But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.


    Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.


    See also Dave's new book, Let Patients Help! A patient engagement handbook - how doctors, nurses, patients and caregivers can partner for better health care.  http://www.epatientdave.com/let-patients-help/

    Today's topic is: Patient Autonomy or Something More Sinister?

Tune in.  Think Happens.


    What’s Hot, What’s Not. Tune as Dr Daniels gives her best picks as to the up coming trends in Healing, self - care, health care and healing. You heard it first here. Think Happens..

    PATIENT TERMINATED, BLACKBALLED LEFT WITH NO CHOICE BUT HOSPICE.

    in Health

    A discussion with the Wife of patient that after complaining of his level of care and the workers in the clinic, he was terminated for what appears to be trumped up reasons. He has since been blackballed from other clinics in his area; with no clinic to go to he has been forced into HOSPICE.


    This appears to be an ongoing problem with DCI, Fresenius and Davita. This patient was a Davita patient. Dialysis Advocates went to their Legal Department and Javier Rodriguez the CEO of Davita. It appears that no one cares at the CEO level; we’ve asked him and the Legal Department to help with this patient. Nothing came from our request to CMS to help this patient who had no appeal and is not allowed to face his accuser. 


    This is happening much too often in too many clinics where complaining about care or workers leads to retaliation. What if any investigation is done at the clinic level is often poorly done and biased in favor of the worker or clinic. Patients are not allowed to see the results of an investigation nor are they allowed to face their accuser. A patient it appears has to go to legal to clean up a record they are not allowed to see.


    We are having too many patients with the same situation Nationwide. One even having to strip down naked before getting dialysis.

    The Conversation: Dr Angelo E. Volandes, MD with Scott Cluthe on End of Life

    in Caregiving

    Scott Cluthe talks with Dr. Angelo Volandes, author of The Conversation, about the most difficult one spouses and/or family members will ever have to have: End of Life issues. 


    Dr. Angelo Volandes is a practicing internal medicine physician in the MGH Department of Medicine and a junior faculty member at Harvard Medical School. He is a Harvard College and Yale Medical School graduate.

    Angelo continues his work surrounding Advance Care Planning (ACP), the process by which patients plan for future medical care under circumstances of impaired decision-making. 

    His study compared the preferences of patients after seeing a video depiction of a patient with advanced stage dementia, to those who received a verbal description of that health state.
     
    There is an unspoken dark side of American medicine-keeping patients alive at any price. Two thirds of Americans die in healthcare institutions tethered to machines and tubes at bankrupting costs, even though research shows that most prefer to die at home in comfort, surrounded by loved ones.


    Dr. Angelo E. Volandes believes that a life well lived deserves a good ending. Through the stories of seven patients and seven very different end-of-life experiences, he demonstrates that what people with a serious illness, who are approaching the end of their lives, need most is not new technologies but one simple thing: The Conversation. He argues for a radical re-envisioning of the patient-doctor relationship and offers ways for patients and their families to talk about this difficult issue.
