During the Health Council of Canada Symposium on Patient Engagement Daniel Stolfi, star of Cancer Can’t Dance Like This, disclosed that his tipping point to becoming an engaged patient, came when he was being over medicated in error and suffering bad side effects but no healthcare providers were listening.
Healthcare leaders across the country came together to learn how to improve patient engagement and increase safety and improve outcomes at the Allstream centre in Toronto.
Daniel presented his patient story to inform the system on how to improve communications between doctors and patients and increase the state of collaboration. His presentation was funny, deeply personal and moving. The crowd was animated and laughing.
A report of the symposium is promised to be released this winter.
