What would other patient educators do?

Do you ever feel like you’re all alone in your role? Do you ever wonder what other patient educators would do in your situation?

Why not communicate with other patient educators around the country . . . and the world. . . through a listserve? A listserve is simply a list of email addresses to which the same information is being sent. In the case of an electronic listserve, anyone who signs up (subscribes) gets the emails sent to that one email address. Respond to that one email address, and everyone signed up sees your response.

One listserve I’m active on is PatEdNet, the Patient Education Network. I’ve gotten quick responses to my questions. It’s really a great resource. And it will give you an opportunity to share your expertise and experience, too!
