Patient Modesty: Volume 34
This thread has been continuing since August 2005..approaching now 5 years. With the literally thousands of commentaries written to this topic of patient modesty on this blog, I challenge our visitors here to go beyond simply expressing their concerns here, much of which I do consider valid, and now progress to the necessary chore of broadcasting the concerns to the general public, the medical system, the politicians and the government. I would like to see evidence of such action since I am sure that this will be the only route to real change, real change that I now realize (which I hadn't prior to 5 years ago) is necessary. So "go to it!"..Maurice.
ADDENDUM 5-15-2010: Those who wish to participate in advocating to the public and the medical system your views regarding the need for more attention to patient modesty and gender selection of healthcare providers, a long time visitor to this thread, swf, has set up an advocacy blog
to begin this advocacy challenge. Go there and start the process.
