John Showalter, MD (CPO, Linus Health) discusses the types of cognitive care that patients want from their physicians and what physicians need to know about cognitive health as is carves out a bigger place in primary care. According to a recent survey of patient expectations, more than 80% of elderly patients are concerned about developing dementia, but their doctors are not screening for early indicators or discussing treatment and prevention. Dr. Showalter discusses this survey data and why proactive cognitive care must become the standard immediately. Also, Lydia Makaroff, PhD (CEO, Fight Bladder Cancer in the UK, and current President, World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition), and Alex Filicevas (Executive Director, World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition) explore obstacles to quality care in bladder cancer, as well as topline and brand new data from their global survey among patients and caregivers. Wondering why you might see a lot of bubble blowing this month? May is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month, and to draw attention to this, the world bladder cancer community, patients and physicians alike, will be blowing bubbles.
