Listen to the Patient!

What is the "Net Treatment Benefit for the Patient?" Remember, the first rule of medical ethics, FIRST DO NO HARM! Figure out the "Net Treatment Benefit" for the patient before and after treatment.

Here is a Treatment Score Calculator™ for patients, doctors, nurses, and everyone else, that you can print or download. It is a simple, easy way to understand the concept of the "Net Treatment Benefit for the Patient" using chronic pain as an example.

The patient who takes Tylenol®, Motrin®, Naprosyn®, or hydrocodone will almost never receive the same "Net Treatment Benefit" from these medicationss. The treatment effects are different and side effects are different. In addition, every patient reacts differently to medications!

The Universal Treatment Score Calculator™ at the end of the document can be used to educate yourself about any treatment for any disease:

Treatment Score Calculator(TM) - Chronic Pain Example

What the patient most needs to know is the "net treatment benefit" for them. When anyone gets sick they need a list of treatments with Treatment Scores.

The Treatment Score = the net treatment benefit for the patient.

This is the simplest example of how to calculate the "net treatment benefit for the patient" that we have come up with so far. You can print or download the Treatment Score Calculator(TM) - Chronic Pain Example here:

ALWAYS SEE YOUR OWN LICENSED MEDICAL DOCTOR FOR DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT, AND MEDICAL STATISTICS, INCLUDING TREATMENT SCORES.
