Many patients are frustrated by restrictions on their medical appointments – they might be too short, or sometimes doctors use the "1 issue per visit" rule. That frustration is understandable, because these practices often waste patients’ time with multiple trips to the doctor, and can lead to drawn out and fragmented care. If your goal is more timely and effective care, join Kirstin Veugelers, Personal Patient Navigator from Navigate Your Health, to learn  some strategies and tools, and how working with an advocate can help you to work better with your doctor, in spite of resource shortages.

Please note that this workshop is being offered both in-person and online. Please pick the "Register Online" ticket option to receieve a link to the workshop on February 26th.

Bio

Kirstin Veugelers

Kirstin Veugelers, PhD, is on a mission to help patients and their loved-ones get results from our stretched healthcare system. Kirstin personally experienced the frustration of navigating the healthcare system to address her own health issues. Now she bridges the gap between patients and medical care providers, drawing on her patient experience, paired with her knowledge and skills from careers in biochemical research and university teaching. Kirstin attends medical appointments to make sure that information is clear, and then follows up to make sure next steps are manageable. Kirstin also educates on how to get effective healthcare through public speaking, blogging, and other opportunities to share health navigation tips.

A portion of the proceeds raised from this event will be donated to Caregivers Alberta.
