Empowering Patients and Providers to Partner for Best Care
After experiencing the challenges of being a caregiver for a child with complex chronic conditions, Kristina Sheridan changed careers from satellite engineering to health care research. She did this in order to research and develop patient-facing health care tools and strategies to help other patients and their caregivers manage their chronic conditions, as well as, become active partners with their care teams. This presentation includes insights into managing chronic conditions, tangible strategies and solutions used to support recovery, and the results of the patient empowerment research that was inspired by this family’s experience.
