SIGN UP HERE FOR OUR NEXT TRAINING
THE PROBLEMA patient who is injured, sick, in need of surgery, a medical procedure or just elderly with an ailing body may not be in a position to be active in their care and they may need to focus all their energy on getting well. For this reason, a family member or friend, chosen in advance to be an advocate or “helper” is crucial to the patient's care. But what exactly does an advocate do? Who would make a good advocate?
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROBLEM
THE SOLUTIONThe person who loves you the most may not be the best advocate for you. His or her emotions may get in the way of good communication and clear decision making. Through our educational seminars and programs you will learn about preparing for the emergency room and helping a patient to prepare for surgery. You will learn about policies and standards used in the hospital to keep patients safe and how you can help to ensure these standards are met. You will also learn that the most important tool will be a pen and notebook to write down information and keep accurate records for the patient.
