What you can do
This is a revolution made up of small actions. Here are a few ways to get started. If you have others, please reach out. We welcome additions to this list.
READ WHY WE REVOLT
Our book is the best way to understand what The Patient Revolution is about and what we are fighting for. Plus all the proceeds go to support the mission.
If you've read it, consider giving it to someone else who you think might get something from it.
Then join us for one of our monthly tweet chats about the topics in the book. Next we talk about Conversations on Monday, April 8, 9p ET/6p PT.

HAVE a different kind of visit - patient/caregiver edition
There are some things it is hard to share with your doctor. Visits are short. Everyone is in a hurry. But sometimes it is the thing you're nervous about sharing, something that is weighing on your mind, that might be most important to share.
HAVE a different kind of visit - clinician edition
See what happens if you create a small amount of space for stories that don't usually come up in a visit. This reflection tool provides 4 questions to open up the conversation. (Patients should feel free to use this as well and just share the information with your clinician!)
What is one non-medical thing about your life you think your doctor should know?
What is one thing your doctor is asking you to do for your health that feels like a burden or feels harder than it should?
What is one thing your doctor is asking you to do for your health that is helping you feel better?
Where do you find the most joy in your life?
Let's partner on a workshop
Let's work together to practice building new ways of talking with each other. We partnered with Narrative Medicine at Story I/O to create a workshop that allowed patients and clinicians to talk about the barriers that impact how they talk with each other. Then the participants used improv strategies to create new conversations in the moment. Do you run an event? Let's work together to bring this idea to your participants. Contact us.
