Partnering With Your Loved One to Get the Best Care

Does care partnering improve a patientâ??s outcome? While research hasnâ??t connected with this question yet, we decided to do a little sleuthing of our own. Patient Power founder, Andrew Schorr, sat down with MPN patient, Sylvia, and her husband, John, to ask them firsthand about the value of a strong care partner. Listen as Sylvia shares her story, punctuated by all the times John intervened, supported, researched and facilitated on Sylviaâ??s behalf.

This town meeting was sponsored by Incyte Corporation. It was produced by Patient Power in partnership with City of Hope.
