Your 1-3-6-12-Month Plan to Becoming an Empowered Patient
The Empowered Patient is a 50,000-word book that enables patients and their loved ones to successfully navigate complex medical delivery systems. The book's goal is to encourage, embolden and enlighten medical consumers and their advocates to proactively participate in their own medical treatment, which the author hopes will lead the health care community into an era of increased safety and accountability. Ten chapters focus on numerous patients' rights and patient safety issues. Each chapter identifies a different health care issue and provides easily comprehensible and very specific strategies to empower all medical care recipients. A majority of the guidelines in the book were regularly used by the author during her daughter's many hospitalizations over a 10-year period.
All proceeds support the efforts of the coalition.
