So why the big surge in the field of patient advocacy? We all know that the medical/industrial complex is dysfunctional and based on profit and disease management rather than wellness and prevention. But I have a question for those of you who are considering this as a career move: what is the context of this surge at this time? Are things getting better or worse?
I just returned from the annual conference of the National Nurses in Business Association which was held in Las Vegas. What a wonderful conference with speakers from many fields - all designed to inform and guide RNs to move beyond the traditional RN role, to fill the needs emerging in this fractured medical/industrial complex.
