Patient empowerment is designing and delivering healthcare in a way that puts the patient at the heart of healthcare services; it is inclusive and enables patients to take control of their healthcare needs. Although we all agree that care is safer when the patient is an active participant and partner in their care, many organizations continue to struggle to identify methods of truly engaging patients and family members in their care.
