Inspire highlighted in CNN article on physician bias toward patients with disabilities
Inspire CEO Brian Loew was recently featured in a CNN.com article highlighting a Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital study, which has revealed concerning attitudes among American doctors towards patients with disabilities.
According to the study, more than 82% of American doctors believe that patients with significant disabilities have a worse quality of life compared to those without disabilities. These negative perceptions have significant implications for the quality of care that patients with disabilities receive.
In the article, Loew explains that many Inspire members have reported experiencing skepticism and a lack of understanding from medical professionals. He emphasized that support groups can play a crucial role in helping patients feel less isolated and providing practical advice on communicating with doctors and maximizing medical appointments.
Inspire offers a supportive community for patients and caregivers navigating the challenges of living with disabilities.
