Share Your Story of Medical Overtreatment

Share Your Story of Medical Overtreatment


Originally reported in the Grassroots Network Message 1006021 "Survey for Patients/Consumers on Overtreatment"

 
Have you experienced any kind of medical care that was unwanted or that you thought unnecessary?
 
Have you declined treatment recommendations and found a medically appropriate, less intensive alternative? 
 
If so, you are not alone and we want to hear your story whether it's a C-section that you didn't want, a hysterectomy, or back surgery, CT scans, medications, whatever.  
 
The "Share Your Story" survey was developed in partnership with Consumers Union's Safe Patient Project and www.TreatmentTrap.org
 
Your responses on the short survey will help other women avoid unnecessary heartache.  Go to www.treatmenttrap.org and click on "Share Your Story."
 
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Rosemary Gibson ( rosemarygibson100@gmail.com).  Rosemary led national health care quality and safety initiatives at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for 16 years and wrote the new book, The Treatment Trap.
