The overwhelming majority of Americans will die of complications from a chronic disease. But most will also live with little acknowledgement or awareness of the toll that inattention to the disease process plays as time progresses. Instead, we await the “crash”; the episode that sends chills, demanding we face the inevitable.
How does a consumer become a self-advocate and prepare for a time and place that we’d prefer never occur? Who is to judge when frail patients can no longer reliably judge for themselves?
