Dear SIDM friends and colleagues,

Would you have any tips, advice or pointers regarding the issue of 2nd
opinions?

I will be giving a webinar next month at www.washaa.org on the topic,
geared towards professional patient advocates, nurses, social workers, and
the general public.

*Is there a point of view worth talking about that is hardly ever
addressed? *Any pointers on the various areas covered would be greatly
appreciated:

1) Data/studies on effectiveness, diagnosis or treatment plan change after
2nd opinions,
2) When to seek (and when not to seek?) a second opinion
3) How to select another provider for a second opinion
4) Second opinion companies, their pros and cons as a resource
5) Insurance issues with second opinion visits, diagnostics, etc.

If you prefer a quick phone call instead, please let me know.  You can
email me directly if you prefer.

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Io
