Mission Statement and Goals

Mission Statement and Goals
MISSION STATEMENT:

We believe that each patient is an individual and as such has specific preferences and needs including what accommodations they require to maximize comfort when their modesty must be compromised in the medical experience. Our mission it to act as a liaison between patients and providers in establishing, understanding, and executing the policies and procedures essential to that end. When appropriate we will act as advocates for patients to achieve that goal through interaction, education, and referrals to both patients and providers.


GOALS:
Our goal is to help patients achieve dignified and respectful healthcare through education and information. Everyone has different needs and expectations of their healthcare providers, and we provide choices and options in obtaining those needs. We understand that modesty, privacy, and respect are primary needs when facing procedures and we promote educating providers in the sensitivity of those needs.

  1. This is crap. What patients need is doctors who know what is best for them. Modesty has no place in medicine!

  2. Modesty has a place wherever we choose. I expect it everywhere...but others certainly have the right to only accept it where they can get it.

  3. why is it that some who feel modesty has no issue for them, feel it has no place for everyone. The egotistical view that if its right for me its right for everyone causes so many issues. Once again annon dec 29 assumes modesty and good sound medical treatment are mutually excusive of each other. Respecting each individuals feelings, including modesty, and treating them as valid is key to any relationship, is there any more important commercial relationship than in the medical field? So, Annon 29, if you get the right burger at McD's who cares if the tell you to go to hell when they hand if over, after all its about the burger, not respecting you...might be fine for you but don't assume you have the right to speak for everyone...alan

    1. Thank you 'Anonymous Jan 2'. I wish our efforts can be put together to at least initiate something in this regard instead of isolated notes here and there.

      I agree. To date the most powerful tool I can think of is a website that discloses all of the information a person would need, and resolutions if that does not happen. But, I am open to other avenues as well.

  4. I am fast approaching my first exam with a female doctor. I was a little hesitant to contact her due to her gender. On the otherhand she is ideally located very close to my home, and her practice is highly regarded. I would expect that my privacy will be respected and I am not worried.

  5. My aim to highlight the lie that male doctors do become aroused when doing intimate exams, I intend to expose the lie with hundreds of news links of male doctors in court for sexual abuse of women, my main interest is gender choice for intimate exams in stressful medical setting, by law it should be offered, choice is available via the NHS but kept secret from patients, which posses a question, the type of men that take up the job, when hundreds of other medical job are available, the fact more females are being trained for gynecology.
