Week 5 Hospital Stays & Surgery  - 
In the past year, I’ve spent close to 40 overnights in the hospital with my parents, plus roughly 10 emergency room visits with them. I dislike going to hospitals … a lot. I think I’ve developed some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder around hospital visits. I find that I am great in the moment and deal with crises easily, but afterwards I am exhausted and when the time comes to venture off to the hospital again I tense up, feel a sense of …

Would love your ideas and feedback on this question. I'm writing a blog post on the topic of patient-doctor communication, specifically for patients that have an existing relationship with a doctor, but now they want to become more involved in their own healthcare. The questions are:

What questions to ask your doctor about how you can become more involved in your health?

What NOT to say/do when wanting to become more involved in your own healthcare?

Conversation starters for the above...  (ie how can a patient start this conversation with their doctor, do they need to schedule a separate appointment for it?)

(I'd LOVE input from patients, nurses, caregivers AND doctors!)

Good article on repurposing old blog content.
Are your old blog posts dragging your blog down? It might be time to rework them or take even more drastic measures: delete the posts entirely.
