The lunch time session at today’s Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative Stakeholder’s Meeting included the voice of the patient, in this case a person who is a school principal. The quote in the title of the post is just an example of how the conversation changes when the patient voice is included. We stop thinking about health care as an end and more about life goals, with health care as a means.
Kudos to the meeting organizers for explicitly including the patient voice.
Waaaaaa, I wanna come!
PCPCC is wonderful. (I posted one of Chair Paul Grundy's slide decks on my blog.) They should have a meeting in Boston. (I've told them.)
