Supporting People’s Empowerment and Engagement in Health and Care with Dr Lourdes Ferrer

This presentation is part of the International Foundation for Integrated Care’s Webinar Series organized in association with Edgehill University. A key principle of integrated care is active patient involvement and empowerment, but in practice, it is often being paid lip service. Until recently, the question of how to involve patients, their families and caregivers as well as their wider communities from the design through to the delivery of health and social services has often been sidelined, even though strong evidence exists for many tools of their positive effect on health outcomes, patient and professional satisfaction and cost effectiveness.
