)-- Through her new book, "Questioning Protocol," Randi seeks to enable caregivers to feel in-control and to understand the choices that need to be made on behalf of their ailing loved ones. She has witnessed families being intimated by the medical community and overwhelmed by vast amounts of information and emotion.
Randi advocates a simple understanding and offers the tools needed in an emotional situation. She incorporates her corporate know-how and decision-making techniques to create straightforward, easy-to-follow action items – a tool kit with 50 concrete tips of what people can do now - to help cope with and prepare for a healthcare crisis. It is easier to learn about the healthcare system prior to needing care.
This combination of what to do and how to do it gives readers the missing link to ensure they can become their loved one’s best health care advocate.
Because Randi and her husband mastered how – and when – to ask the right questions, get understandable answers and evaluate alternatives, their son is thriving and managing his chronic disease with nutrition management and no medication.
"Questioning Protocol" has won several awards including the Pinnacle Book Award Winner for the Health Category Spring 2014 and the 2014 Indie Excellence Book Awards Finalist. The book is available in print and ebook format.
