Yesterday’s medical-blog Grand Rounds, on What it Takes, is hosted by the Prepared Patient Forum. There’s a nice array of diverse posts. Among my favorites this week are from patients’ perspectives: by Warm Socks, on complex and simple physical systems for remembering to take pills and by Heart Sisters, on ditching the bucket list.
I recommend the Prepared Patient® blog in general; it covers patient-doctor relationships, medical ethics, health care economics and related issues. The forum includes a “dial 411” section with links to on-line, telephone and community resources for patients. The website is sponsored by the Center for Advancing Health, a D.C.-based institute.
The center’s stated mission is to conduct research, communicate findings, and advocate for policies that support everyone’s ability to benefit from advances in health science.
