    Is approaching medicine like a politician accomplishing much?

     

    Fighting for our patients

    Perhaps if we do not think of this as a fight for ourselves, but more of a fight for our patients (and the doctors and patients of the future), we might become more inspired.

    One of a surgeon’s strong points is being able to explain the reality of a procedure----both good and bad--without pulling any punches to help guide patients in their decision making.

    What if we should apply that same skill to the medical system at large? I cannot help but wonder if our approaching medicine in Washington, DC, like politicians isn’t getting us exactly what politicians accomplish . . . Not very much.

      We absolutely should speak directly to patients. We desperately need a unified voice other than the AMA.
