Medical Education and Patient Involvement

Patients have always been very important in medical and nursing education, but their role has mostly been as passive aids to the learning. Patient involvement means participation of the patient in decision making or expressing opinions about different treatment methods, this includes information sharing, their feelings and signs and accepting instructions of health team. Active participation of patients as educators has increased over the past 20 years as a consequence of government and professional policy directives relating to public and patient involvement in healthcare, moral importance related to social liability, and the desire to broaden curricula to include the psychosocial aspects of health, promote patient-centred care and include the voices of those who are experts by experience.
