Changing Career from Med/Surg, LTC to Patient Rep?


    How does one become a Patient Representative?
    Also, how does one become a freelance Patient Rep, and IS THERE SUCH A THING?

    My background is primarily Med/Surg, and LTC.

    I seem to be "drawn" to be a patient advocate, so that sortof points in the direction of patient rep.

    Are patient reps "really" reps for the patient ~ or is that just a created job to satisfy corporate liability?

    If I do it, I want to really do it and not just be a figurehead or a phoney.....

    what about researching a federal grant to start a business, re: a grant to establish a patient rep/advocacy group?
