WomanSafeHealth: The Antidote to Status Quo Health Care

by Elizabeth Shadigian, MD

Drawing on the actual experiences of women, WomanSafeHealth: The Antidote to Status Quo Health Care uses cartoons and humor together with analysis and compassion to reveal what it means to meet a woman’s health care needs. Status Quo Health Care is a term coined at WomanSafeHealth to describe the poisoned care most women experience – hurried, depersonalized, cold, disrespectful, profit-driven – care that neglects her individual story and choices.

At WomanSafeHealth each woman is a person, not a disease; a client, not a number. She is the focus, and her health care team is her consultant.
Prescribing self-awareness, care analysis and personal empowerment as antidotes to Status Quo Health Care, Elizabeth affirms what every woman already knows: safety and respect must be the core of health care.
