Society for Participatory Medicine
e-Patients.net is an ongoing project of the Society for Participatory Medicine.
Participatory medicine is a cooperative model of healthcare that encourages and expects active involvement by all connected parties (patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, etc.) as integral to the full continuum of care. The ‘participatory’ concept may also be applied to fitness, nutrition, mental health, end-of-life care, and all issues broadly related to an individual’s health.
The Society was founded to learn about and promote Participatory Medicine through writing, speaking, social networking, and other channels.
