30 Rock, Medical Tests, When Negative is Positive (or Vice Versa?)

Ted Eytan, MD, a patient empowerment advocate and a fellow Tweeple provided a heads up about a clip from 30 Rock which all us non-medical professionals can relate to.  It’s brought to us by Hulu:

Have you had this experience?  Is negative a positive?  Or is positive a negative?

Isn’t this just a great example of the disconnect between the way the professionals talk and the way we patients understand?  or misunderstand?

Have you ever thought test results were OK only to find out they weren’t?  Or vice versa?

You can learn more about Dr. Eytan at his blog.

You can follow him at Twitter — and I hope you’ll follow me at Twitter, too!  You’ll get a heads up on the latest and greatest in patient empowerment.
