Chat with Patients Like You with #patientchat
The Empowered Patient Chats (#patientchat) are bi-weekly tweetchats held on Friday at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern. During the chat, patients, care partners, and advocates come together to learn from each other and discuss topics of interest to empowered patients.
Our Facebook group builds on the success of the #patientchat and aims to extend the discussion beyond Twitter and engage a larger population of patients and caregivers on Facebook.
Living with a disease or other chronic condition is challenging for patients, their families and friends. The Empowered #patientchat strives to engage and empower patients and caregivers by connecting them with each other, sharing resources and inspiration across conditions, and exploring important topics of interest to those in healthcare who want to elevate the patient voice in all healthcare matters. The community is guided by a belief in keeping the patient perspective at the forefront of all healthcare interactions, the strength of peer support, and the power of shared decision making in healthcare.
