In the self-advocacy community, there is a saying thaht we hold very dear to our hearts, and that is “nothing about us without us.” this means that if there is a decision of any kind about us, we except to be part of the conversation; even to lead the conversation! -Liz Weintraub, Senior Advocacy Specialtist, AUCD
- What are the 3 types of advocacy? There are three types of advocacy – self-advocacy, individual advocacy and systems advocacy.
- What does advocacy mean in healthcare? A patient advocate helps patients communicate with their healthcare providers so they get the information they need to make decisions about their health care. Patient advocates may also help patients set up appointments for doctor visits and medical tests and get financial, legal, and social support.
