Let’s Drop In On The Playbook Classroom


The Playbook

The Playbook is the ultimate "how-to" resource for learning how to not only navigate and survive the healthcare system when you or a loved one has a complex or overwhelming medical condition, but to actually thrive!

The Playbook will shorten your learning curve and empower you to become a high performing patient or caregiver!

"I really like the direction and think there are some great insights & tools in there. It's one of the most interesting things I've seen lately. It's aimed straight at the critical "skills gap" that patients must close in order to effectively own their care. This is an important experiment toward the breakthroughs our health system needs to realize the promise of Person-Centered Care."


"I've been poring over your curriculum. I'm just in LOVE with it. Particularly the emotional processing pieces. This stuff just makes me gleefully happy. "

Cynthia, PhD

"Congratulations on getting your amazing project up and running!"

"The Smart Patient Playbook is an excellent, accessible, true to its tagline tool for the layperson and professional to develop high performance care teams. "


"I loved the analogy of Man vs Wild (I am a huge fan of the show as well!) as that perfectly captures the scenario patients are dealing with. The worksheet and exercise is well organized, thought provoking, and certainly valuable to work through. It also indirectly can be very motivating as people work through it because it guides one to an apex. Love it!"


"All I can say is: OMG! What a huge help!!! So this comes as a heartfelt thank you to you and yours."


"Doug at 3 week mark after last chemo. Not a great day but he listened to fav music alone all day and by the eve he said he was feeling much better. It has been 7 months, hard to believe that we made it through this far. You and Cary have been so important on this journey. Thank you both from the bottom of our collective hearts for all the input. Must get to bed. Lots of love to all. Gloria"


"Good afternoon, Jim. Thank you for this great news. It takes a big weight off of our shoulders. We were informed today since he has completed his cochlear implant counsel (selecting the actual implant itself - color accessories, etc.) that the doctor’s office will start the insurance process. Thank you for everything, Heather"


"The Smart Patient Academy changed my life, and taught me how to form better relationships with my medical team and my support system around me. Cheers to a happier, healthier life!"
