It's sobering, but many people spend
longer researching their holidays or selecting what car they're planning
to buy than they do before making decisions about their health. If
you've grown up in the Western world, you've no doubt
been conditioned from an early age to see your doctor as a bit of a
'god', they who must be trusted and obeyed. But times are changing.
Should you really be placing such a burden of responsibility on your
GP/consultant or are there better ways of doing this,
such as through 'shared decision-making' or more informed choice,
whether it's for us or our dependents?
This week both our articles have been
written for all you 'Health Creators' out there who are actively
participating in your own health journey - or who would like to start.
Our lead article looks at the concept and role of informed
choice in healthcare. We hope it gives you some food for thought and
sows the seeds of an idea that you can actually retain control over your
healthcare decisions. Sometimes I think the terms 'informed choice' and
'informed consent' repel people in their formality.
Really it just means that you deserve to be given all the information
necessary for making a balanced, informed decision, with or without
input from your health professional. Hopefully, it'll mean that you'll
devote more time to research before saying yes
to healthcare decisions, much as you would before paying for a holiday.
Our second piece features a video from
ANH's founder, Rob Verkerk. It's the first in a series we'll be doing to
explain what our Blueprint for Health System Sustainability really
means for you and why we're so passionate about
it. This short video, along with a transcript, talks about creating a
universal language around healthcare so we can understand each other in
order to make better informed decisions.
In health naturally, sustainably and properly informed
