Following a different model

Crisis is often our catalyst for change. When it comes to healthcare, we must strive to not follow this model. We must work to be proactive.

As both patients and professionals, we worry about outcomes. However, all we can control is our preparedness, our level of awareness and our behavior.

We must learn the required skills and information before we need them. We must practice our conversation techniques before we have to have the conversations.

Effective healthcare advocacy requires a new model; a model of facing difficulties before they happen.
