Self-management in Healthcare
"Gimme My Damn Data".....was the name of a conference I attended in Luzern, Switzerland. It was there that I heard E-patient Dave's inspiring story of overcoming cancer.
Dave's incredible story gives testimony to how the Internet helped Dave find solutions. Moreover, connecting to others online, sharing information, and co-creating value has helped many patients in their health journey. This is Dave's TEDxtalk called "Let patients help!"
Fun fact: Dave's story inspired my Master's thesis on using social media for health promotion.
