A New Culture in Healthcare
The health care system is incredibly complex and medical education often reinforces a culture that results in parent/child relationship rather than partners in health both bringing expertise to the relationship.
As a practicing questionologist who studiens current behavioral science, a long history of managing change and a deep commitment to helping others, PatientisPartner brings a unique perspective to enhance health care. How might we solve the most thorny problems in Healthcare- WITH Patients as equal partners at the table?
It is incredibly challenging to change particularly in the health care arena where so much is routinized and "factory like" focused on efficiency. How might we change this and include patients (often not from the healthcare world) in the change process?

Building a Questioning Culture: Curiosity breeds Innovation
