My blog post in the British Medical Journal!

Allow me to share with you this thrilling sight, dear heart sisters!  It’s the Twitter page of the British Medical Journal (BMJ) plus its Tweet about my BMJ blog post called Why Physicians Must Stop Saying: “We Are All Patients that was published today. 

A big “thank you” for this goes to Dave de Bronkart (some of you know him better as ePatient Dave). Dave is a sneaky sort of guy who, unbeknownst to me, sent the BMJ editors a link to my recent Heart Sisters post called “We Are All Patients.” No, You’re Not. The editors then contacted me to ask if I’d also write something for them, and here we are!

Can I just say – – – WOW!!      🙂

  2. Ha – you earned it! All I did was tell ’em about you.

    Seriously, the BMJ genuinely gets it. They’re forming a patient advisory board for their EDITORS (can you imagine JAMA or a cardiology journal doing that?) and a year ago they even invited me to submit an essay to their print edition on how the e-patient community helped save my life.

    The world of medicine and the culture of medicine are changing to better understand the role patients can play.

    You’re part of it. Rock on!
