Theme of the Show: Patient Advocacy
Guest: Connie Jorsvik, BSN – Patient Care Advocate – www.PatientPathways.ca
Lead Host: Stephen Garrett
Patients, particularly at the time of terminal diagnosis are often in need of an advocate to be both their eyes and ears. Connie discussed with us the importance of having an advocate attend important medical meetings and appoints in order that the patient both hear what is being said to them and that they are in turn heard by the medical system. Connie plays an important role in ensuring accurate and meaningful conversations take place.
