I did an interesting thing today: a nearby teaching hospital runs a scheme where they send 1st year medical students to talk to patients about their experiences. Two sweet twenty-something girls came to my house, and asked various questions about my diagnosis and self-care etc, and listened to me as I told the whole sorry saga. They were as shocked as I am. It felt good to help educate the next generation of doctors to respect patients and listen!
Has anyone else participated in anything like this?
