Smart Patients Get Smart Care

I just came across this (Ref.) short article at “The American Journal of Managed Care”. This article presents a short interview with Brian Koffman, MDCM, DCFP, DABFM, MS Ed, medical director, CLL Society. As a former cancer patient, Brian
suggests to other patients to educate themselves on their illnesses in order to receive the best care. Actually, he thinks this is critical and he encourages patients to learn and share the information with their treatment team. Along this mindset, the motto chosen at the CLL Society, is “smart patients get smart care”.

I am sure you all agree with Brian’s perspective as I do, and hope that our discussions on this website will help patients across the world to educate themselves faster and together with their medical team, implement such knowledge to increase the chance of a successful treatment.

And since you are here, discussing or looking for information, you are one of those smart patients (caregivers) who will end up with a better care.
