Publicity is good, but I would also think that knowing the big hindrances to progress and understanding the problem would be useful.

For me, it was not until I had a tragic experience, that I learned the statistics.  It all changed after I read Anna's 14,000 page medical record.  I'm on Sermo, the doctors' blog - not a lot of endorsement for the IOM reports.

In this community here - it is a hot topic.  Not so much with others, even healthcare providers.  I believe that change willoccur faster when the public /media starts pushing for changes.
