Asking the Right Questions at the Right Time #patientchat

Navigating Your Path to Empowerment

You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat discussion on how to ask the right questions at the right time along your patient journey.

Not everyone’s patient experience is the same. While there are commonalities, people tend to approach their diagnosis in different ways, face different struggles, and find different ways of coping. The Path to Empowerment framework helps patients find their voice at every step of the way.

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

T1: What resources did you connect with when you were newly diagnosed? How did you find them and who connected you with them? #patientchat

T2: If applicable, were you offered genetic testing? If so, how did it impact your treatment journey? #patientchat

T3a: What are your tips to get the best, most-personalized treatment for your situation? How can you plan for treatment side effects? #patientchat

T3b: Were you offered and/or did you consider a clinical trial as a treatment option? #patientchat

T4: What are some of the barriers to access the best treatment for you? What are some ways to overcome access barriers? #patientchat

T5: What type of social/mental/physical/nutrition support have you had as a patient? Where can you go to find support? #patientchat

T6: What do you do to live your best life through treatment and beyond? #patientchat

We hope to see you Friday, September 4th 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!
