Two Resources for Patient Advocates

My book, Getting Your Best Health Care: Real-World Stories for Patient Empowerment, advises professional and family advocates how to keep their loved ones safe during health crises. Thanks to the advocates and activists who contributed stories, many of which appear in Chapter 12, on finding and working with professional patient advocates.

Second, Dorland Health’s new Professional Patient Advocate Institute offers webinars, newsletters, special reports, a directory, and certification for advocates. Membership has its privileges: notably, two free copies of my book, too. The book is also available a la carte from PPAI at a discount, and on Amazon.
