Heads-up, people - this is somethin' good.
I was invited to speak today at a meeting on "Patient-Centered Health" sponsored by the Ontario Hospital Association. I was followed to the stage by Vaughan Glover, author of Journey to Wellness, a 2005 book with a terrific vision of healthcare in which patients are truly responsible for the state of healthcare.
I hope to write more about it later, but for now just savor this quote from the back cover:
"We, the patients, must lead the way in building the next generation of health care in our country. The change will be driven by an informed and empowered public, demanding access to what is possible rather than what a government or any other support group is willing or able to provide."
How could I not have met this guy before?? Glad I did.
