Q1.  What are your thought when you hear “non-compliant” and “compliant” when used by someone in the medical profession in reference to diabetes?

Q2. Lately there has been a lot of talk/blogs using the term “e-patient”.  Do you consider yourself an e-patient? Why or why not?

Q3. How does your HCP (Health Care Professional) feel about you taking online information to your appointments?  Does he acknowledge your findings or play them down?

Q4. What are your thoughts on Endo’s, CDE’s and Nutritionist using SM? Pros and Cons?

  • Q1. What are your thought when you hear “non-compliant” and “compliant” when used by someone in the medical profession in reference to diabetes?

    — I think it’s a more professional sounding way to tell us we are being a “good diabetic” or a “bad diabetic”.

    Q2. Lately there has been a lot of talk/blogs using the term “e-patient”. Do you consider yourself an e-patient? Why or why not?

    — Not at all. I don’t e-mail my endo generally when I have a question, and I never self-medicate based on research I’ve done online. I see my endo in person and present him with the information I found and my corresponding symptoms.

    Q3. How does your HCP (Health Care Professional) feel about you taking online information to your appointments? Does he acknowledge your findings or play them down?

    — As long as I am not doing anything without talking to my endo or my family doctor, I don’t think either of them mind me doing research on my own to bring up at my appointment.

    Q4. What are your thoughts on Endo’s, CDE’s and Nutritionist using SM? Pros and Cons?

    — I don’t really see a point in them using it, they can’t legally be giving medical advice via SM. Also, wouldn’t any client contact they have via SM kind of break the Doctor/Patient Confidentiality?
