You'll finally hear your voice - that of the patient and the caregiver whose cries for guidance, strategy and tools are finally heard and answered
Congratulations on taking the first step on your journey to becoming Empowered! This is the book that is named for the emotion you will feel after reading just the first few chapters. Why does it resonate so? Because you'll finally hear your voice - that of the patient and the caregiver whose cries for guidance, strategy and tools are finally heard and answered.
Jim Skinner, author of this book and founder of The Smart Patient Academy ™, skillfully weaves strategy and insight with entertaining stories of resilience and humor that will make you say, "Ah Ha! Somebody finally gets it."
As a cancer survivor and brain tumor patient, who is also an expert in healthcare, Jim likes to say that he can "cut shorten the patient learning curve down from years down to days, or even hours." Jim refers to this book as an "awareness tool" that gives you the language you need and the framework you can copy to extract the most value out of the healthcare system possible. Just knowing that much can change your experience for the better and sometimes even the outcome of your care.
And for the really motivated among you, realize that Empowered! is the first stage of a much more robust training program offered through The Smart Patient Academy™ called The Opportunity Coach™. The "Opp Coach" is the training system that will turn you into a High Performance Patient or High Performance Caregiver in bite-sized stages.
As Jim likes to say: "Relax, Listen, and Play." You are now in the driver's seat. This is your life. Make it a work of art.
