There is surely something here for everyone…
This is a right-sized discussion of patient self-advocacy, through the window of the author’s personal experience of life-threateningly poor care. It is broken down into coherent pieces that individually focus on areas like asking questions, considering drug side effects as a cause of problems, the importance of access to information, the role of technology, and navigating the complex systems of health care. Her personal journey is the thread that ties this together. It includes a collection of tools and templates intended for the reader to adapt and use in their own settings. Not everything here will apply to every patient in every setting, but there is surely something here for everyone.
