Advocacy is about helping people help themselves. It’s about making people stronger – able to speak up for themselves. 30 So it’s really important that the advocate works in a way that helps the partner grow in confidence, pride and dignity. This can only happen if the advocate works with the partner in such a way that the partner learns to grow into becoming independent to the best of his or her ability. Remember in the first book of speaking up we agreed that the best advocate is one that works so well with the partner that after a while the advocate won’t be needed any more?
The employer might think the advocate will become a barrier instead of a help. This seems quite reasonable really. But if the advocate and partner had written to the employer when first applying for the job and clearly explained the role of the advocate, the benefit of having the advocate present, then maybe the employer would have behaved differently. The example of the doctor refusing to give confidential medical information to an advocate is different. Here the doctor might have different things on his mind: First, there is a tradition in Western medicine that medical information is too complicated and potentially dangerous to share with a patient or anyone who has not been given medical training.
This happens quite a lot. The advocate has to understand that this is very unethical behaviour by the doctor. It is like blackmail. 37 The advocate has to make it very clear to the doctor that the advocate’s job is to help the partner understand all the choices and possible consequences, and then speak up for the partner. The advocate cannot try to persuade the partner for or against any particular action. That is the doctor’s job (or the caregiver’s job, the social worker’s job…). They are the experts.
