THE SLIPPERY SLOPE OF HEALTHCARE: Why Bad Things Happen to Healthy Patients and How to Avoid Them
 
Steven Kussin, MD, is a physician, educator, award-winning author, and a pioneer in the Shared Decision movement. He is a graduate of Columbia College, The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. In his new book, THE SLIPPERY SLOPE OF HEALTHCARE: Why Bad Things Happen to Healthy Patients and How to Avoid Them ,  Dr Kussin discusses what happens to perfectly healthy people who are the unwitting victims of medical care’s three-ring circus: over-selling, over-diagnosis and over-treatment that results in unintended consequences. The slippery slope of healthcare is “a cascade of escalating misfortunes produced by more tests with incrementally greater risk, expense, and fewer benefits.”  Contact: www.TheSlipperySlopebook.com
