The latest report from our partnership with the Picker Report on Aging in America blog:
One of our goals at PickerReport.org is to promote person-centeredness by using social media to put elders, their advocates and care partners, at the center of the conversation on patient-centered care.
The PickerReport is pleased to announce a major advance in this goal through a partnership between the ElderBlogging website www.TimeGoesBy.net and RealCareNowTV. TimeGoesBy.net (TGB) was founded by Ronni Bennett, an elder who coined the term “ElderBlogger” and has helped hundreds of elders communicate and connect through blogs.
In the past, Dr. Bill Thomas has penned a column for TGB to answer health questions in his role as a geriatrician. Now, Ronni has agreed to appear via livestreaming video with Dr. Thomas on RealCareNowTV to launch a regular series on elder health.
Ronni and Bill recorded their first conversation last week and you can watch it below. We will soon have live episodes broadcast at PickerReport.org/RealCareNowTV that will incorporate a live chat function so viewers can share their questions during the show.
Another way you can participate is by posting your elder health and person-centered medical questions for Dr. Thomas right here in the comments section of the blog. As Ronni rightly pointed out at TGB, please be aware that Dr. Thomas cannot answer questions specific to readers personal health issues.
