(Even the name &quot;patient&quot; suggests waiting, which is something we do a lot of...) &nbsp;If, as a smart person once said, &quot;every system is perfectly designed to get the results it gets,&quot; then our system is designed to get dependent, passive patients as opposed to activated, engaged, responsible consumers. &nbsp;How will patients become consumers? How will our health care providers and the complex payment system adjust to this transformation? &nbsp;What role must teachers play to ready students for the multiple, varied roles they will play?</p>Presented by Meg Gaines, JD 2011-04-27 A Different View of the Healthcare Crisis: Going Back to Supply and Demand Presented by Benson Hsu 2011-04-21 Update on Federal Conflict of Interest Policy Presented by Debra Whitman, PhD 2011-04-16 Bonnie Berman Symposium: From Solo Voice to Chorus: Attuning Health Policy to the Diverse Experiences of Patients <p> <span>National health care reform includes provisions intended to help patients cope with our maddeningly complex health care system, yet will also make that system even more complicated. How can reform responsibly acknowledge the complications inherent in the laudable aspiration to meet patients&#39; needs without becoming stymied by the complexity of that task? </span></p> <p> <span>In this talk, we argue that the only way out of this conundrum is to create an infrastructure designed to elicit and respond to patients&#39; diverse experiences with finding, financing and using care. We begin with a case study documenting how univocal patient advocacy fostered the recent dramatic expansion of newborn screening for heritable disorders. </span></p> <p> <span>Extrapolating from the lessons we derive from this example, we then propose a set of principles and policies designed to integrate a greater diversity of patient voices into a pluralistic conception of health policy making - a conception we argue will better serve both policymakers and the American public.</span></p>Presented by Rachel Grob, PhD; Martha Gaines, JD, LLM; Mark Schlesinger, PhD 2011-03-31 Advancing Public Health in Health Reform Dr. Fisher's research focuses on the causes, consequences and implications of variations in health system performance.
