AN EASY WAY TO BE SEEN, HEARD AND RESPECTED BY YOUR DOCTOR...

Human Advocacy, Inc. has created, “Everybody Needs a Hippo”, by Adam Goodman and Nicolai Nastase. It is a little 36-page, adult-fairy tale in a Dr. Seuss/Disneyesque style that takes the reader through the “patient side” of the medical experience. The hippo can stand for a hippopotamus or the Hippocratic Oath. With comic relief, the reader learns how to obtain real answers to her/his unique medical condition, resulting in the ability to make truly informed medical decisions.

It introduces the “Quality of Life” chart, providing an easy way for the doctors and patients to collaborate, jointly participate in the prognosis, and enables the doctor to respect the patient when prescribing a treatment plan.

Nastase talks about the medical events that led up to Adam Goodman’s and his writing of “Everybody Needs A Hippo”, and how you can help your physicians help you.
