TheLiteratePatient: What Should We Know?
February 8, 2014•50 min
INAUGURAL SHOW that can change lives--even save them. Hosts: Joni Aldrich, author, The Saving of Gordon: Lifelines to W-I-N Against Cancer, and Dr. Melissa Stewart, author, Practical Patient Literacy: The Medagogy Model, will discuss practical methods to grow from a passive patient into a literate, involved patient. It’s not our fault. We’re taught, but not the skills that we (as non-medical professionals) need when we’re diagnosed with a serious and/or chronic illness. And, our healthcare system is broken with physicians overworked and nurses understaffed a risky mix for prime care and safety—for a simple cough or a life-threatening disease. The Literate Patient will help you be an educated advocate for you and your family. Listen to Joni live M-F at 2:00 p.m. ET on www.W4CS.com. www.JoniAldrich.com
