Joint replacements are the #1 expenditure of Medicare. The process of approving these medical devices is flawed according to the Institute of Medicine. It is time for patients' voices to be heard as stakeholders and for public support for increased medical device industry accountability and heightened protections for patients. Post-market registry. Product warranty. Patient/consumer stakeholder equity. Rescind industry pre-emptions/entitlements. All clinical trials must report all data.

USA Patient Network-Advanced Patient Training Workshop June 3-4, 2016

I (Joleen Chambers) attended this excellent workshop last weekend (photo above).  Every patient should have this information BEFORE taking any drug or being treated with any medical device!  Dr. Diana Zuckerman, President of the National Center for Health Research hosted the workshop and these are her presentation slides.  I also must thank PCORI (Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute) for awarding partial financial support to the host organization of this workshop.
