It’s an unfortunate truth that many people are unsatisfied with their relationships with their doctors. They often feel that their own concerns aren’t given any credit, that doctors don’t really listen to them, and that they are helpless to do anything about it. The concept of participatory medicine, however, throws all that out the window. In this show, a doctor and a patient describe how the field of medicine can – and should – change by including the patient in everything. They discuss how technology can play a bigger part in improving the patient experience than it currently is. They also touch on dealing with patients who are misinformed and how medical records aren’t as accurate as we think they are.
