Dr. Sammy Winemaker is starting a social healthcare revolution with The Waiting Room Revolution podcast. On The Waiting Room Revolution podcast, Sammy is having insightful conversations about palliative care, advance care planning, and change-making for end-of-life care with co-host Dr. Hsien Seow. Sammy is an Associate Clinical Professor, Department of Family Medicine, in the Division of Palliative Care at McMaster University. She teaches palliative care to healthcare professionals.
Here’s what The Waiting Room Revolution website says about their mission: They started the Waiting Room Revolution movement because they wanted to improve the patient and family illness experience. They want to build a community to share deeply human stories about caring for others. Through interviews with experts, clinicians, patients, and caregivers, they are harnessing the advice of those with lived experience to better prepare those who are just starting their caring journey.
They cannot do it alone. Individuals, families, and communities have to be empowered as the catalyst for change. They believe we have so much to learn from one another.
As they say in The Waiting Room Revolution, Together, we can move from being “in the dark” to being “in the know.
