Women need to have their voices heard in the medical care system. Yvette Sims is a nurse practitioner who specializes in women’s health and talks about the decline of femininity in the healthcare system.
One of the biggest problems of the modern healthcare system is the shift towards prioritizing the business model of making money over focusing on patients’ needs. This change incentivizes doctors to see the maximum number of patients and offers extremely limited time for the individual, which results in women not feeling heard during their visits.
There are so many complex hormonal systems and balances in a woman’s body, it is crucial for women’s health that we provide enough time to properly listen to their concerns in order to understand and diagnose their needs.
