Odyssey: Safer Medical Care for You and Yours

When a physician finds himself a patient, the experience assists him to become a more complete physician. Through stories, examples, and detailed handouts, a physician/patient shares his discovered insights with you.

Given current patient mobility, physician practice models, and the state of the electronic medical record, it is imperative for patients to be involved in, informed about, and responsible for their care. Six patient-centered tools that facilitate the work of health care professionals and enable them to provide safe, effective, and compassionate care are presented. The tools also provide individuals with a better understanding of their personal medical record. These concepts are applicable to the care of significant others (for example, elderly parents) for whom the individual has responsibility.
