#LCSM Chat Topic 02-Sep-2021– It’s Your Life: Be an Engaged Patient
#LCSM Chat on Twitter is back from our summer hiatus! This Thursday 9/2 at 5pm PT (8pm ET) our topic will be “It’s Your Life: Be an Engaged Patient.” Patients who are engaged in their own healthcare have better outcomes.
Some of the “old timer” patient and advocates in the cancer community will be around to help newbie and experienced survivors learn the ropes of being an engaged patient. This chat is open to ALL cancer communities–everyone can benefit from this discussion.
#LCSM Chat co-moderator and cancer research advocate Janet Freeman-Daily (@JFreemanDaily) will lead our discussion using the following topics:
- T1: What is an engaged patient?
- T2: What’s so great about being an engaged patient?
- T3: How does one become an engaged patient?
- T4: How can physicians and engaged patients work together effectively?
If you’re new (or intimidated) by tweet chats, look at this primer. As #LCSM Chat cofounder Deana Hendrickson says, “I’m a technologically challenged klutz. If I can join a tweet chat, you can too!” Please join us this Thursday night. We’re a super friendly bunch. Remember to include #LCSM in ALL your tweets so the other chat participants can see them. See you then!
