Mike and Joyce speak with Dr. Julia Hallisy about The Empowered Patient Coalition: providing healthcare improvement and patient safety tools directly to consumers.
About Dr. Hallisy:
Dr. Julia Hallisy obtained her BS in Biological Science from the University of San Francisco in 1984 and a second Bachelor’s degree from the University of California in Dental Sciences. In 1988, Dr. Hallisy received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of California at San Francisco School of Dentistry. Since that time, she has been a full-time practicing San Francisco dentist.
Her second child, Katherine Eileen, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. 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.
Dr. Hallisy began to research the topic of patient safety in 1998. She has lobbied for health care reform in Washington, DC with Consumer’s Union.
Dr. Hallisy is committed to and passionate about the subjects of patient safety, health care reform and medical error reduction. She is the founder and president of The Empowered Patient Coalition.
Dr. Hallisy was born and raised in San Francisco, where she lives with her husband, John Hallisy, and their two sons, Daniel and Kevin. The Hallisy’s ten-year old daughter, Kate, lost her life-long battle with cancer in February 2000.
Father Donald E. Mowery is the retired leader of Youth Services globally. He has had a radio show, Talk it Out with Father Don, on WHBQ radio in Memphis, Tennessee, for the past 45 years. This month Joyce Graff appeared on his show. Joyce and Father Don have a great conversation about Powerful Patient and its mission, and also about Youth Services and its mission, highlighting many parallels. In both cases, they work to empower people to work through the issues they cannot change and tackle constructively the things they can change.
Learn more about Father Don. A new book, Spiritual Networking, by Darrell B. Uselton and David Yawn, recounts the history of Youth Services in Memphis and worldwide.
In the world of Pit Bull Advocacy, we all want the same thing. The fair and equal treatments of the dogs we know and love as Pit Bull. One thing has been clear in my 12 years as an owner, lover, and advocate, our methods and views are not always the same, and we can, and we do, clash. In fighting, boasting, egos, and more. What can we do as advocates to look past those differences, avoid such clashes and do away with the egos involved, including our own?

Population health has arrived on the healthcare scene, and if we’re smart, we’ll make sure it’s here to stay. Susan Marks from Amati Health will talk with Singola Consulting about why it’s smart to move towards population health, what an effective strategy looks like, and how it benefits both healthcare organizations and the patient experience.
Patient Advocacy is an important area of specialization concerned with a patient’s knowledge regarding the use of health plans, insurance, understanding medication that has been prescribed to you as well as your diagnosis and treatment. With the Institute of Medicine reporting that anywhere between 44,000 and 98,000 hospital patients die every year due to medical mistakes, it is increasingly vital that patients have someone to help guide them.
In this episode of iNurse Radio, our host Jeff Allen chats with Ava Sammarco, LPN, regarding the importance of patient advocacy, how patients can avoid succumbing to the problems in our healthcare system and the questions you should be asking as a patient to ensure you receive above standard medical care.

This was and still is one of the hardest parts of the healing journey for me. I am a person who is more a perfectionist and there is a certain expectation I have for myself and others. As I have been getting closer to God, these expectations have changed because I realize we live in a fallen world and we are all dust (Psalm 103:14). If God remembers that I am dust, I need to also remember that I am dust and can do nothing without him. This includes any healing that needs to happen.
I speak on healing a lot on this show because so many of us are doing everything, but allowing ourselves to heal from past breakups, childhood traumas, past abuse, and more. We need not reject our internal healing otherwise we will never be able to function in the way God would have us to. Actually it will many times cause us to fall into many temptations and sins which will cause even more wounds.
How can we be patient once we make that serious and wonderful decision to allow God to heal us. It is not an easy journey at all and I hope that someone will be encouraged in their path. This is a very vulnerable time where falling back into old patterns, toxic/sinful relationships, depression, and more is so common. How do we also be patient with ourselves when we do mess up because we will in some ways.
Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
