Patient advocate or disruptive physician?

In today's culture doctors who speak up may find themselves walking on thin ice according to this Medscape piece which concludes:

"If someone feels morally obligated to speak out, they have to accept the fact that it may be an ugly fight along the way," Noone says. "That's why I advise doctors to think twice before blowing the whistle."

This is exactly why I created the Disruptive Physician's Toolkit ... so you can be a patient advocate and/or raise a clinical concern and NOT get labeled "disruptive".

You can find the full training here.
