Smart Patients Don't Just Know About Health and illness -- they've
got a handle on the health-care system and know how to make it work
for them. In Patient Power , two health professionals give you the
low-down on who is involved, what they do and what they shouldn't
do, and what happens.
Patricia and Arthur Parsons break down the health-care system
into three areas: the people, the process, and the results. They
introduce you to a whole cast of characters: doctors, nurses,
technical people, allied health professionals, and some of the
people who deliver alternative approaches to health-care. They
explain what each of these characters does and the language they
use. They talk about common diagnostic tests, how drugs are
prescribed, high tech medical equipment, and what happens in the
operating room after you go to sleep. In 'The Results, ' they give
you an insider's view on issues such as medical ethics, overuse of
the system, social problems that have been made into medical
problems, and how to have a 'smart' death.
Entertaining, informative, and easy to read, Patient Power will
give you power over what happens to you in the health-care
Patient Power is an entertaining, informative, and easy-to-read
