NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

You should know about the Society for Participatory Medicine

e-patient Dave urged me and convinced me to join the Society for Participatory Medicine, and then he posted a kind note about my joining and about the work we’re trying to do on this site.

That work has many overlapping goals with the Society’s. Under the masthead of the Society’s website it reads:

Participatory Medicine is a movement in which networked patients shift from being mere passengers to responsible drivers of their health, and in which providers encourage and value them as full partners.

And you should know about the Journal of Participatory Medicine, whose mission is to “transform the culture of medicine to be more participatory,”
