From Stage-4 Cancer Patient to Healthcare Activist: One Survivor’s Story

Keynote speaker Dave deBronkart joins host Alicia Sutton to discuss the evolving roles in the patient and doctor relationship.
  • Overview

    From the annual meeting of the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Healthcare Professions in Orlando, Florida, keynote speaker Dave deBronkart joins host Alicia Sutton to discuss the evolving roles in the patient and doctor relationship.

    Better known as ‘e-Patient Dave’, deBronkart emphasizes key points in the shift from the patient as a passive recipient of care to one where the patient is an active contributor to his or her own care. deBronkart discusses healthy patient:doctor communication and ways clinicians can employ effective techniques.

    As a co-founder of the Society for Participatory Medicine and stage 4 kidney cancer survivor, deBronkart speaks globally on how patients should be partners in their care, rather than passive recipients, and how collaboration makes healthcare better for everyone.
