Whitney Zatzkin Posted almost 4 years ago "WHY is the patient the most under-used resource in healthcare?? How did that happen?" (Follow-up to LIVE TED Conversation July 27) I think following the person ahead of you without thinking first is awful. I agree with you on the discussion front. When facing bladder cancer as a family, we turned to a very small message board community of patients and practitioners all swapping support and interpretation of results/outcomes among one another. At times, I needed the other daughter-caregivers to educate me. At times, I needed the patients to educate me. At times, I needed the practitioners to educate me on making a decision or understanding a finding. The forum has now blossomed and formalized to be more helpful and more robust but it was an eye-opening moment for me to see that people WOULD come together when they needed it most.
