Current Academic Year Research Seminars
Although patient-centered approaches have contributed to significant advances in care and to treatments that more fully respect patients’ preferences, values, and personal experiences, the reality is that health care professionals still hold a monopoly on the role of healer.
Patients live with their conditions every day and are experts when it comes to their own experiences of illness; this expertise should be welcomed, valued, and fostered by other members of the care team.
The patient-as-partner approach embodies the ideal of making the patient a full member of the health care team, a true partner in his or her care.
The presentation will uncover this innovative approach to patient care, including the conceptual framework used in its development and the main achievements of patient partners in education, health care, and research.
