Communication and Participation in Health

Learn how to place communication and participation at the heart
of evidence-based healthcare

The Knowledgeable Patient: Communication and Participation in
Health
sits at the forefront of the challenging, changing
21st century landscape. The 'knowledgeable patient' as
an individual can take many forms: patient, family carer, consumer
advocate, or member of the public interested in health issues. In
each of these roles, knowledgeable patients interact with health
professionals by asking questions about the evidence for treatment,
seeking support, exchanging views, and contributing experiences and
new ideas on how to improve the health system.


Drawing from several research paradigms, The Knowledgeable
Patient
is an essential guide to a new era of complex
healthcare. Integrating consumer stories and evidence from
systematic reviews, it examines key communication and participation
issues in a range of contexts, including:



  • surgery

  • safe medicine use

  • chronic disease self management

  • the complexity of multimorbidity

  • notification of rare disease risk.


The Knowledgeable Patient is international in scope with
researched examples spanning living in the community, health
service treatment, governance, and policy making. It provides
health professionals with new ideas, concepts, evidence, and
practical tools to understand the central role of communication and
participation to a well-functioning health system.   It
is an ideal reference for undergraduate and postgraduate students
studying the health sciences.
