Patients-Provider Collaboration Equals Better Care
Participatory medicine is a movement in which activated, empowered patients engage as drivers of their health, and in which providers encourage and collaborate with them as full partners in their care. This Webinar discusses successful initiatives to realize the benefits of this innovative approach to care delivery.
Our speaker, Dr. Danny Sands, is a founder of The Society for Participatory Medicine (S4PM),a not-for-profit membership organization devoted to promoting the concept of participatory medicine by stimulating dialogue, influencing policy, advocating research, and educating patients, health care professionals, and others. S4PM members include stakeholders from across the health care continuum, representing patients, caregivers, health care professionals, health care executives, and others who do work or have an interest in health care.
