Finding an Advocate within the Medical System
There are times when a patient or family seeks an advocate within the medical system, for medical care management or for a medical "second opinion," to ensure and reassure themselves that their loved one is receiving the best possible care. In fact, seeking an advocate within the medical system may be the primary rationale for requesting a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment or other personalized Geriatric Consultation services.
