Welcome to the Editor’s Desk. This is your place to engage in conversation with me, the editor of SharingStrength. Read the quarterly Editor’s Feature where I focus on topics important to the SharingStrength community. Join me on the Editor’s Blog and tell me what you think about the things that matter to you.
Do you look for health information on the Internet and discuss what you find with your doctor? Have you ever read a posting on a discussion forum and thought, “Yeah, I have that side effect too. I’m going to talk to my doctor about it”? Then you are an e-patient — equipped, enabled, empowered and engaged in your health and your health-care decisions.
SharingStrength’s forums and blogs are a good place to gather and participate in community knowledge. Join the conversation.
Check out resources from the SharingStrength library that can help you define your e-patient style.
CaringVoices.ca is an online community for cancer survivors. Supported by the Princess Margaret Hospital, CaringVoices.ca provides quality survivorship information and encourages survivors to find and chat with other cancer survivors across Canada.
