Our Purpose

Our family members need us to help them get the best possible medical care. When they're ill, we and they need to know how to advocate most effectively, and work best, with doctors, nurses, and other health professionals. In focusing on the needs of family caregivers and their patients, this blog provides advice to keep our parents, children and other loved ones with acute or chronic illnesses healthy and safe from medical errors.

We provide a place for readers to tell and hear stories about the medical care they have seen and experienced, to give advice and get advice.

We help patients and advocates to be knowledgeable, pro-active, and empowered partners with their doctors and nurses.
