Discussion about entry: Educating Tuberculosis patients for excellent results | Changemakers – The Ashoka Changemakers competition , patient|choices|empowerment, has provided me interesting food for thought, and exposure to innovators challenged by similar problems in health care to ours.
In the linked exchange, Dr. Shelly Batra, educates me about patient empowerment in India. I think there are parallels to US health care, maybe not on the same scale. Nevertheless it is humbling and engaging to see the work of physicians like Dr. Batra. Watch the video describing her work here.
If you are interested in the topic of patient empowerment and want to get exposed to some ideas and environments you hadn’t considered before, please head over to the contest site and review some of the ideas, and comment on them. Thanks to Ashoka for opening up their platform to this type of dialogue.
