Happy walking with Happy Feet in 2016!
The very important story of one
It is often said that a change is as good as a holiday. January with a change in routine has given me some time to rest, time to spend with family and friends and some time to read and think. Be it a customer, client, patient, acquaintance, friend, employee, manufacturer, employer, community or private service provider, sports player, supplier, religious, organisational or political leader; what do any of us view as normal or acceptable behaviours? I took some time over the break thinking and surfing the net about what is reasonable with respect to health care. What can the consumer expect? What can the doctor or allied health professional expect? What can support staff in the allied health system expect?
What can the doctor or allied health professional expect? What can support staff in the allied health system expect? I came across an article titled “Consumer expectations and healthcare in Australia,” a Deeble Institute issues brief, which is authored by a Dr Michael Taylor and a Dr Sophie Hill. The Deeble Institute is an Australian Health Policy Research Group.
My interest in considering the issue of reasonableness in the provision of health care is threefold. What do I expect as a consumer of my doctor and the allied health professionals I attend for my health? What do consumers expect of me in my service and product provision as a pedorthist? And thirdly what systems do I use to achieve my expectations as a consumer and / or as a provider of pedorthic footwear?
