!!!!!! Safer Medical Care dovetails quite nicely with Atul Gawande's latest work, "Being Mortal." Dr. White’s contribution has the potential to be one of the best things that medicine has ever done. I hope medicine fully appreciates what he is trying to change. Brian D. Wong, MD MPH, Head Coach/CEO, The Bedside Trust, Author, Heroes Need Not Apply. !!!!!! Dr. Mike White’s outstanding experience and fund of medical knowledge shine through on every page of Safer Medical Care — a fine addition to the medical safety canon. No one except the late Oliver Saks MD writes as feelingly and perceptively about case studies. Dr. White compellingly shows how handy (at one’s fingertips) personal medical records save lives and how My Personal Professional Patient Advocates (My P3As) steer care away from callous courses and towards humane and favorable outcomes. Attorney James Lieber, Author, Killer Care. !!!!!! The stories in Safer Medical Care for You and Yours are exceptionally well done and represent a very good read. They make an engaging case for the thoughtful ninety minute construction of one’s own organized, accurate and up-to date very personal medical record to be “a must do” for you and for those near and dear to you. Carl Galligan PhD, Dean Emeritus Hagerstown Community College. !!!!!! Dr. Mike White gives back to healthcare the gift of a patient-centric, laser focused clinical dynamic that creates the foundation for a safer, more efficient and more effective healthcare encounter for both patients and providers. Ellen Amalfitano RN PhD, Director Performance Partners Premier, Inc. !!!!!! In Safer Medical Care, it is my intent to convey a simple message — that each of us be involved in, informed about and responsible for our healthcare and thereby positioned to enable and receive safer medical care. To make this wish come true, I provide four tools for safer medical care as gift examples: My (Unique and Very) Personal Medical Record; My Chief Complaint (my story — why I am here today); My (Unique and Very) Personal HealthCare Values; and My Personal Professional Patient Advocate (My P3A). More detail is available at www.tmichaelwhitemd.com. My message — involved in, informed about and responsible for — is simple. It is on point. All too real charismatic stories in Safer Medical Care for You and Yours illuminate its significance to you. Although my message is not rocket science, I am confident that it will, along with the science and art of the better angels who care for you so well, assist you and yours find a pathway to safer medical care. Dr. Mike White, Safer Medical Care for You and Yours.
