Of the many health books that attempt to guide consumers through the specifics of a particular disease, few may be as helpful as this overall guide to navigating today's complicated health care system. Clarke and Evans are longtime observers of the health field and advocates of sound consumer health policies. And they've combined their talents to show consumers how to use the medical system intelligently.
The authors cite five critical areas for consumers to focus on to get good care: getting your doctor to pay attention, making the best medical decisions, seeking the right kind of support from family and friends, appreciating your caregiver, and protecting your choices in critical-care situations.
The book is both practical yet deeply psychological in urging readers to look at their own decisions, emotions, thought patterns and habits.
