Patients as experts

Patients as experts : Informed and shared decision-making: the crux of patient-centred care : A thought-provoking article by a doctor. "Often, our approach to involving the patient, although well-intentioned, is flawed by a failure to accept the patient as an equal partner. A consultation should be seen as a meeting between experts, that is, physicians are experts in disease and patients are experts in their own experience of disease and in their preferences."
