With so many chronic conditions and such an increase, we have to stop just putting bandaids on patients and instead help them get actively involved in looking for their root causes and stop eating the standard american diet. If we don't, our patients won't see improvement. If we keep doing the same type of care we will not get different results. Patients need advocates, but need to take charge and get informed.

I am seeing more and more pts picking and choosing which prescriptions to fill based on cost. Care management should be more heavily involved after the RN learns of this information for community resources and solutions.
