Medical Information for the Patient

Topic: 

This interesting article from the Managed Care Magazine talks about "information therapy." The article defines information therapy as "the practice of providing more and better information to patients so they can contribute more to their healing." This doctor-provided information encourages the patient to be more active participants in their care and helps to counteract the incorrect information which is so readily available.
