With so much emphasis in the healthcare field on experts and expertise, here’s a tweet and its responses that look at this question. The next time you were asked who the health expert is, what will your response be?
I use this statistic often in my talks. I asked a group of students last week "who are the health experts", they answered "doctors", I said "no, patients are – doctors are there to work with our expertise about our bodies to help us get better if/when we need them". https://t.co/jDraCf4qIk
