Last month, the Patient Revolution team took to Twitter to host our first #WhyWeRevolt tweetchat. We want to get to know the folks who are sharing their stories and engaging in these conversations about moving healthcare to something that is careful and kind, and we kicked off our first chat by taking a look at Victor Montori's book, Why We Revolt.
Our questions were centered around the language of the book and the discussion online was exciting. We have picked a few of our favorite Tweets in case you missed the chat. Enjoy the read, and if you'd like to see all of the discussion, take a look at the #WhyWeRevolt hashtag on Twitter. Our next Tweetchat will be announced soon!
Thanks to the engaging and inspiring discussion we had last month, we're returning to Twitter on Tuesday, August 7th for our second #WhyWeRevolt Tweetchat. This edition will take place on August 7th at 6 pm PT / 9 pm ET through Twitter. Tune into the @patientrev Twitter account for questions on August 7th, and follow the discussion via the hashtag #whywerevolt.
This month, we'll be talking about digital tools and how they help, or hinder, careful and kind care. There's a lot to unpack there, and we're excited to hear everyone's take.
We'd love to have you join this discussion, so mark your calendars for August 7th and we'll see you there!
Victor Montori's book, Why We Revolt, invites patients and clinicians alike to change not only the way we look at healthcare, but also how we talk about healthcare. We asked, "Why is this shift in language important?"
Why We Revolt was highlighted on The Exam Room podcast this week, featuring Patient Revolution co-founder Victor Montori in an engaging, exciting conversation about the roots of burnout to why doctors should not be called providers with host Dr. Brian Vartabedian. You can listen to the podcast by clicking the image below, or through this link.
