The Informed Patient

The Informed Patient The term, ‘Informed Patient’, presumes that people with illnesses (‘patients’, but not just those awaiting treatment) need appropriate information in order to be properly involved in their healthcare – be it to seek care, decide on the best courses of action with care professionals, or to follow through the agreed course of treatment. The project deliberately focused on patients, excluding wider issues of health promotion and education, though these aspects may be critical in terms of preparing the public to avoid illness, or for any encounter with illness or the healthcare system.
