Transformative Healthcare Practice through Patient Engagement

Book Description

Recent literature suggests that patient participation and engagement may be the ideal solution to the efficacy of healthcare treatments, from a clinical and pragmatic view. Despite the growing discussions on the necessity of patient engagement, there is no set of universally endorsed, concrete guidelines or practices. Transformative Healthcare Practice through Patient Engagement outlines the best practices and global strategies to improve patient engagement. This book features a convergence of healthcare professionals and scholars elucidating the theoretical insights borne from successful patient education, and the technological tools available to sustain their engagement. This book is a useful reference source for healthcare providers, students and professionals in the fields of nursing, therapy, and public health, managers, and policy makers.
