Promoting Patient Engagement and Participation for Effective Healthcare Reform

Book Description

Industry professionals, government officials, and the general public often agree that the modern healthcare system is in need of an overhaul. With organizations concerned with the long-term care of patients, new strategies, practices, and organizational tools must be developed to optimize the current healthcare system. Recent literature suggests that patient participation may be the ideal solution, as patients and caregivers who are more actively involved in their healthcare experience better outcomes. Promoting Patient Engagement and Participation for Effective Healthcare Reform outlines models that can be used to harness the power of patient involvement as a way to instill change in the healthcare industry. This book features a convergence of healthcare professionals and scholars providing insights into the best practices of interventions and reform as well as practical applications to foster patient engagement and participation. It is a useful reference source for healthcare providers, students and professionals in the fields of nursing, therapy, and public health, as well as managers and policy makers.
