In our Society’s work to evangelize the partnership model of medicine, one of the recurring hurdles has been the difficulty of compensating patients for what can be truly professional-level contributions.

Last Sunday our longtime member Danny van Leeuwen (aka @HealthHats, for all the hats he wears – nurse, advocate, caregiver, e-patient) has written a hot post about paying patient experts, and it’s getting a lot of well deserved traction on Twitter. I’ve written and said a lot on this subject, and I’ve never seen anything better that this – go read, share, and join the discussion!
