Nuvance Health, in alignment with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Safer Together: A National Action Plan to Advance Patient Safety, will host a Patient Empowerment Workshop series for the community. 

Join Nuvance Health Chief Experience Officer Steve Meth, JD, and David Ezon, MD, a renowned pediatric cardiologist at the Children’s Heart Center at Mt. Sinai Hospital, to discuss how patients can gain the skills they need to achieve their healthcare goals by enhancing communication, decision-making and safety.

“I am thrilled to partner with Dr. Ezon to strengthen our patients’ toolkits to be even more effective partners in care. Access to more information via our mobile devices doesn’t necessarily equate to better decision-making in emotionally challenging physician and patient encounters,” Meth said. “Dr. Ezon’s lived expertise and thoughtful reflections shine as we share digestible techniques to approach some of the most concerning and common challenges patients face as they receive increasingly complex care. I encourage all who are interested in receiving better care, or to ensure your advocacy for a loved one is better received, to join one or more of these workshops with an appetite to share and learn.”

This seven-part, web-based series is complimentary and will be offered on Zoom on the third Thursday of each month, September through March, 12 -1 pm. Dates and topics include the following: 

  • September 15 – Making Decisions in the Dark – How to Make the Right Choice When You Don’t Have all the Facts
  • October 20 – Finding Strength in Stressful Times – You Can Learn to Push Forward and Find Peace
  • November 17 – Creating a Listening Space — How to Help Your Doctor See You and Your Needs Fully
  • December 15 – Building a Shared Mindset — How to Engage Your Providers So You Consider All the Options and Know What to Expect
