Victor Montori, founder of Patient Revolution, led a empowering discussion on Tuesday evening, reading excerpts from him book Why We Revolt: A patient revolution for careful and kind care.
Clinicians, physicians and patients enjoyed his various and impassioned readings and discussions around our “industrial medicine” system from chapters titled: Blur, Greed, Elegance, Solidarity and even Love.
Montori startlingly rescues the language of patient care from business terms and phrases to the language of true compassionate patient care and solidarity. Human being caring for human being.
“Revolution means turning away,” Montori argued, and revolutions begins with common people rising up, not necessarily a leader. He envisions a movement than transports us from our current Industrial Health Care system to a Kind and Caring Healthcare system. “Create an alternative imagination for the future!”
