Engaging beyond the usual suspects: Challenges and opportunities from the patient perspective
Karen Moffat, Cochrane, Alberta – I believe that all individuals and families using the health care system need to have their voices heard in all aspects of their care. As a Patient Advisor, I share my lived experiences with chronic pain, depression, and M-GUS with the hope that a seed is planted and will grow into effective changes being made in the delivery of patient centered care.
