The Empowered Patient
November 23, 2015
This half hour special looks at the new role of patients and healthcare providers in a world where information is more readily available than ever before. With patients doing more of their own research and connecting with other patients on-line – healthcare providers are often interacting with more engaged, informed and empowered patients. Are doctors and nurses ready to embrace this change? Are medical students prepared to encounter more educated patients? And finally – is a more informed patient – a “better” patient? The Empowered Patient explores the concepts and changing relationships of this new era in medicine.
