Key questions addressed

  • So how comfortable are patients in discussing their care with professionals?
  • What do they understand about their conditions, and the options open to them?
  • How confident are they in managing a chronic condition, monitoring their symptoms, and handling changes and setbacks?

A high-quality healthcare system is one that puts patients at the centre of the treatment process. Informed, active patients are one half of the partnership approach that underpins effective healthcare.
