Finally consumers of health care have a detailed resource, 'The Empowered Patient' to help them navigate their health care experience. Julia removes the mystery of medical errors and reveals how a patient and their advocate can try to avoid them. Using real-life examples including her own, this book is an interesting read in itself, but it's also a valuable reference book and thoroughly indexed. A medical event can be a daunting and terrifying experience, Julia eased that burden for everyone by writing this book and I suggest you keep a copy in your home.
