Empowered #patientchat – Chronic Disease and Shame

November 3, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0

Empowered #patientchat - Chronic Disease and Shame

You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat as we discuss shame.

Shame is that terrible, private feeling that something is wrong with us – that we are somehow defective as a person. These feelings of regret and responsibility can be triggered when you are diagnosed with a disease. Certain diseases can sometimes be stigmatized by others, but it does not matter why or how someone has a disease, all that matter is what happens moving forward. Shame can quite often prevent people from getting the care they need and deserve.

Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T#:) Questions:

T1: What role does shame play in healthcare for patients?
T2: Has shame about your health ever prevented or delayed you seeking care or support?
T3: What are your experiences of disease and the issue of shame?
T4: Why do you think some patients feel shame more than others?
T5: How have you overcome feelings of shame or helped others overcome shame?
T6: How might we support more patients in overcoming shame around their health?
T7: How can we de-stigmatize diseases?

We hope to see you Friday, November 3rd on Twitter (or tchat.io/rooms/patientchat) at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern. Be sure to include the hashtag #patientchat in all your responses!
