Tamar Doorduin / Sara Riggare

If you liked the first episode with Sara Riggare, you will surely love this second one. In this episode, Sara Riggare tells us how she expanded her patient advocacy. We talk about the way healthcare is not well equipped to deal with the needs of chronic patients and Riggare explains how medicine started out in times of war, and how medicine's hierarchical structure is well suited for treating acute illnesses but not chronic ones. Chronic patients need doctors who cooperate and who are not afraid to admit that sometimes, patients know more than their doctor.
