Engagement Cartoon – Fun Friday

This week’s Fun Friday healthcare cartoon was shared by the Society for Participatory Medicine. If you don’t know about this organization, take a minute and go check out what they do and see how you can support them. You’ll see why they shared this cartoon.

Sadly, this is the experience of many patients with their doctors. The Society for Participatory Medicine has been working hard to change that mindset. We all need to support these efforts in our own circle of influence. It’s not about what our actions look like, but that we’re really engaged in a relationship with our patients. Doing so will have a powerful effect on everyone in healthcare.
