 From the back cover:

You’ve spent a career as a clinician, perhaps as a nurse or a physician, but feel as if you need to step away from the role so you can truly help patients get what they need…..

OR… you’ve just spent years advocating for yourself or a loved one, and now you think you’d like to help others, and make a living doing so.

People like you, with heart and plenty of skills, choose advocacy as a career. But many lack the business knowledge it requires to build an independent practice.

The Health Advocate’s Start and Grow Your Own Practice Handbook is here to help! It’s time you got started.

How this book can help you:

  • Decide whether you are a good candidate for owning and building a private advocacy practice.
  • Figure out which of your skills need to be improved —and how to improve them.
  • Learn business brass tacks—from details like insurance, pricing and forms, to financials, customer service and practice standards. 
  • Look at insurance, legal issues, marketing, professional standards, best practices and more.
  • Find charts, checklists, scripts and many additional great resources.
