Inspire’s “Experts by Experience”
I’m always moved by stories of other victim’s brain tumor journeys. Inevitably they’re stories of shock, trepidation and courage.
You can read a bunch of those stories at http://www.inspire.com/static/inspire/reports/inspire-stanford-experts-by-experience-report.pdf Here’s the posting describing this effort:
“As many of you know, Inspire has a professional collaboration with the Stanford University School of Medicine. Inspire members have written personal stories for the Stanford Scope column.
I am pleased to announce that today we are releasing a compendium of these stories in a new special report, Experts by Experience: A compilation of patients’ stories.
I hope you find these stories as meaningful as I do. They illustrate what all of us know to be true: patient-centered care is important not only to patients and caregivers, but also to physicians and the future of medicine. Reading these stories gives me great hope about the direction we are headed.
I hope you read these stories and share them widely. We are grateful to everyone who contributed to this compilation.
Together, we're better.
