for patient advocates
Whether you're a family member taking care of a a loved one, a supportive friend or professional navigator, you can increase your effectiveness and prevent feeling overwhelmed by applying the Samepage approach.
Caring for a friend or loved one in a chronic or crisis medical situation is vitally important. And stressful. So is the role of a professional healthcare navigator.
The good news? It can be far more manageable with the right tools. When you 'samepage', you can help increase trust and information exchange, and the relationship with those you care for and their caregivers will function much more smoothly. Self-management will improve, too.
Samepage supports you in your patient advocacy by reducing your own stress, frustration, and time investment - and avert burnout.
Take advantage of free tools and information.
Our Samepage tools such as VisitPrep are designed to provide focus and rank assistance for topics to be covered during the healthcare visits. You can help prepare yourself and your friend or family member, and the healthcare provider can give help and care with efficiency and understanding. Our other information sources, seminars and other tools bring you the knowledge, understanding and action items you need to get you in synch for better communication and better healthcare.
After hearing Dr. Paul talk about ways to manage my communication with my mom's doctor, I feel confident about my ability to make sure she is getting the attention she needs.
