A new publication: A Physician’s Experience as a Cancer of the Neck Patient: The Importance of Patient Participation

Journal of Participatory Medicine has posted a new paper I wrote, 'A Physician’s Experience as a Cancer of the Neck Patient: The Importance of Patient Participation '

My hope is that relating my experiences as a physician who experienced medical care from the other side of the stethoscope will help other patients, their family members, and caregivers recognize the importance of active involvement in their own care. Active involvement can help prevent medical errors and facilitate recovery.
