Here are some questions to get you thinking:
- Why is it important to be involved in your healthcare at the hospital?
- How can you tell the hospital staff you are an #epatient without seeming threatening?
- How can you communicate to the staff you are involved in your healthcare?
- Why is it important to understand the hospital hierarchy/power structure?
- What is the hospital hierarchy?
- How can a caregiver work effectively with hospital staff? What are some challenges in this area?

The first part of the chat we will be talking to Mark-John and then we will open it up for all chatters to contribute and join in.
