I liked the new commercial advertisement sponsored by the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, and its focus on getting involved in care.
It’s a good start. Theoretically, a patient shouldn’t be asking what a test is for while they are going under a gantry that’s about to irradiate them, and I think the commercial stimulates the thinking that this is too late.
So…will there be an advertisement for health care professionals called “Answers are the answer, provide them before waiting for questions?”
Either way, this is great groundwork. Thanks, AHRQ.
