Report: Patient empowerment: for better quality, more sustainable health services globally

Thursday, 15 May 2014

The result of a partnership by six All Party Parliamentary Groups in the UK, this report takes a global perspective on how to empower patients to play a more active role in their care.

Drawing on case studies from low, middle and high income countries, including examples from IAPO members, it outlines how much the UK has to learn from overseas – and how these lessons should be applied. The report also highlights the UK’s strengths, its important role historically in supporting the global patient empowerment agenda, and how it can continue to play a leading role internationally.

IAPO were very happy to be able to give oral evidence to the review.
