Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. April 2019 is Palliative Care Awareness Month. This year’s theme is “Speak up – Because I Matter”, bringing home the point that the patient should be at the centre of good health care delivery. Patient centred care has been discussed many times, and private healthcare providers profess to offer this as a way of distinguishing themselves from others. But, what does this mean to the doctors, nurses or allied health professionals offering the care? In today’s show, we discuss why the patient matters.
