Jana Hlaváčová: The doctor–patient relationship should be a partnership

Multiple sclerosis advocate, Jana Hlaváčová, speaks on the important role healthcare professionals can play in empowering patients.

"I feel we are like a huge family. Everyone has its part to make the world better for people with MS. And being a patient with MS I would say, be a partner to your patient, to have a really nice two-way street communication. Don’t underestimate the patients. Encourage them to be active in managing their health because it’s their health, it’s their responsibility as well, and you’re the one as the healthcare professional to encourage them, to empower them, to take care of themselves."
