I definitely think education in health care is a two way street. Patients use health care because they are having symptoms they don't normally feel. They decide to get it checked out by a health provider. Too often the patient answers questions from a nurse who records the information in the medical record, does physical examination (BP, temp, pulse, heart rate, etc.) and then patient speaks to physician. The physician makes their recommendations. It is usually not a two way street since the physician recommends tests and the patient follows the order of the physician.

The physician may have more tests or do a diagnosis. The diagnosis now has recommendations in recommendations for lifestyle changes. Eating, Exercise and Work activities that the patient really needs to be educated if they are truly going to follow the recommendations.

An example is a patient needs to avoid potassium. The physician makes some comments about foods high in potassium but doesn't go any further. The provider should be working with the patient to get a good idea of what they eat, what they should stay clear of and explain what is happening when their potassium goes up. The patient needs to press the provider with these questions but too often the patient is numb by the almighty health care physician or nurses in the room so they expect everything as an order..

This is a really good overview of EHRs and steps towards adopting them. Christina Thielst, the author, was just voted one of the Top Social Media Voices in HealthCare IT. http://bit.ly/ohpGx4

On the occasion of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we invite you to join HealthworksCollective for an exclusive webinar about the growing role of social media in educating breast cancer patients and connecting them with the treatment resources that they need. Thousands of websites and social media channels now provide fast information to women seeking information about breast cancer. Has this deluge of data helped or hindered? How can women and their families feel confident that what they are reading on the Internet is fact and not fiction? How can medical professionals use social media to optimize treatment and build stronger relationships with patients?

Saturday, Oct 15th, is Global Handwashing Day. 3.5 million children worldwide die of diseases caused by lack of hygiene. Spread the Word.

I think that it is very telling that after yesterday's quake, I found everything I needed to know (and more) from Facebook, Twitter and Google+, NOT CNN, NYT, or WSJ!

+Jeanne Barnett Yes, it's just a list - someone's perspective - I agree with a lot of them, and some of them I haven't even heard of! Interesting though...
