EPF officially launched a major one-year campaign on Patient Empowerment on 20-21 May 2015. We will work in concert with the health community to promote understanding of what patient empowerment means from the patient perspective among political decision-makers and health stakeholders.
“Patients with chronic conditions are often referred to as the most under-used resource in the health system while patient-centered care models have demonstrated better quality of care as well as potential long-term cost-efficiencies. Too many patients are still struggling to get the support they need to become equal partners in care. To make real progress, we need to make patient empowerment a priority, starting with the development of an EU-wide strategy and action plan”

Thoughts:

No need to reinvent the wheel. Especially nice graphic
