Society for Participatory Medicine

Participatory Medicine is a cooperative model of health care 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.

I’m wondering if there is some formal organization or community about ’empowering’ patients here locally.
