The history if not genesis of his blog is noted as follows:
“Mind the Gap” is a warning heard on subway systems around the world. It is intended to alert individuals to avoid accidentally stepping in the “gap” that separates the train from the platform.
As used here, it is an expression that alludes to the communications gap that exists all too often today between patients and their physicians. Like the subway, this blog is a kind of warning. It is intended to making health care provider and organizations aware of the consequences of poor physician-patient communications…and how to avoid them.'
