Episode 01 - Keeping it Human

Episode One: Keeping it human

Welcome to the impatient podcast: a place for patient stories, a challenge to patient care, a change for patient outcomes.

We are kicking our conversation off with one of the more complicated questions in health: why can't we just treat a patient like a human?

Sean and Nicole reflect on their own patient weeks and we all learn a little more about lung function tests (and how not to communicate test results).

We are incredibly fortunate to be joined by Adam Cubito, entertainment publicist and bowel cancer patient, who shares his diagnosis, his professional insights, and some truly staggering truths about how plain bad health communications can be.

Enter Joni Thomes, Associate Director at Palin Communication and health communications expert. Joni unpacks the challenges of communicating about bowel cancer - the varied audience, the crowded health conversation, and the perplexing reality of having two names for the same cancer.

And there we have it - a new patient health podcast! The start of a conversation that invites everyone to the one table. We hope you join us there too! | i: @theimpatinentpodcastHosts: Nicole Cooper (i: @nicolecoopy) & Sean Crank (@seancrank)
