Why are patient education and advocacy so important?

  • Educating a patient about their illnesses, disease processes, medications, and general health and wellness are essential to good patient care.
  • A patient’s understanding about health insurance benefits is important in maximizing the benefits that can be derived from their policy.
  • A patient’s lack of access to care is not always due to a lack of funds. It may be due to a lack of knowledge of the services that are available to them.
  • A patient may not always understand what is explained at a doctor’s visit and may not know what types of questions to ask.
  • A patient may have need of services that are not covered by their health insurance policy and may not be aware of community resources available to them.
  • All of these reasons and others exist that may necessitate consulting with a professional who can educate and advocate for the patient.
