What Does a Healthcare Advocate Do?
What Does a Healthcare Advocate Do? While healthcare advocates may have areas of specialization, their cases often require them to work across the spectrum of advocacy services. Facilitation sits at the heart of healthcare advocacy. Patient advocates do not make decisions for their clients, rather they make them aware of their options. They cultivate a better understanding of the healthcare system by giving their clients background knowledge. They offer the type of support that helps patients get their questions answered and their problems addressed. Ultimately, healthcare advocates strive to handle health care’s logistical issues, so patients and their families can focus on health and healing. #healthcare #advocacymatters #healthcarenavigation
