e-Patient Expert

By November 14, 2012Consumer, ePatient, Leader
When does an #ePatient (empowered, engaged, expert, enabled, equipped, emancipated) become an expert? Expertise=skill or knowledge in a particular area. When does an e-Patient have confidence in their expertise. How does the dynamic change when faced with a professional’s expertise? My 4 year old grandson corrected me recently when I suggested that his vegetarian aunt was an herbivore. No, he said, she’s an omnivore – she can eat meat. He certainly knows more than I do, has confidence in his knowledge, and asserts himself with his knowledge. He’s an expert about dinosaurs, isn’t he?
