Imagine this: you get the call in the middle of the night that your mother is in the hospital with excruciating pain. You rush to the emergency room to comfort her and find the doctor at her bedside asking critical questions. She’s in so much pain that all she can say is “I don’t know.” She may need emergent surgery so the doctor turns to you for more information — does she take blood thinners? does she have any important allergies? what medications is she currently taking? — all questions that determine if its safe for her to undergo surgery but unfortunately you can’t answer those questions either. What do you do?
The time to be informed, educated and empowered with your full health history readily available and easily accessible is now. The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed health disparities at a rate more alarming than pre-pandemic. What’s worse is that research shows that 3 of the top 10 reasons for poor health outcomes relate to: 1) misdiagnosis, 2) delayed diagnosis and 3) medication errors.
In this episode we unpack a REAL LIFE scenario from my clinical practice, tips that put you in the offense not the defense and strategies for being a better patient than you’ve ever been before.
