EU Patient Empowerment Campaign

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

When you care for a family member or friend, we care for you. We’re a community of supportive individuals caring for a family member or friend. We care for parents, spouses, siblings, grandparents and anyone we consider family. We care for you before, during and after caregiving. Create your free account to join our daily, weekly and monthly chats, to start your blog and to connect with others who understand.

Thoughts:

As a caregiver I find caregiving.com to be varied and deep. I especially like the 6 stages of caregiving (I May Help, I am Helping, My Role Has Ended, etc.) I was delighted to hear a podcast on caregiver sexuality. Denise Brown leads this fine effort.
