Accessing appropriate healthcare in today’s world isn’t as simple or as easy as it used to be. The days of the hometown family doctor are over. We have specialists who need referrals and insurance that dictates who you see and how often if you want coverage. We have higher co-pays and deductibles and physicians that are bound to large corporate health institutions who dictate policy and practice. It’s all very complicated.
At some level, our needs as a patient get lost. Our voice goes unheard. This deck is intended to help individuals recognize the challenges inherent in our current healthcare system and build resilience Skills & Attitudes in order to respond. Use it in small groups and problem-solve. Patient advocates can use this deck as a teaching/training resource.
This and the Healthcare Professional deck can be used to provide professional training to both new and seasoned healthcare providers. Bring patients and providers together and learn from one another by having providers respond to challenges drawn from the Healthcare Dilemma deck and patients respond to the challenges faced by Healthcare Professionals.

BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
Please feel free to contact us with your feedback.
