The Patient's Perspective: Medicine's New True North

"e-Patient Dave" deBronkart

Abstract

e-Patient Dave deBronkart, cancer survivor and patient advocate, discusses the changing nature of the patient-physician relationship, with the patient becoming an active contributor and partner in their care. Engaged and empowered patients, e-patients, can help raise levels of consciousness about complex health problems. They can help clinicians and researchers understand living with these problems better, and realize what can be done to solve them.
