Engaging patients, carers and communities for the provision of coordinated/integrated health services: strategies and tools

This paper (working document) illustrates strategies aimed at engaging patients, their families, and carers to be an active part of health disease management and treatment, guiding them to make informed choices. Furthermore, it outlines strategies aimed at empowering populations to adopt responsible health lifestyles and act as protagonists in influencing determinants of health in a human-rights based approach to health. Exemplary tools for each type of strategies are proposed to support the realization of coordinated and integrated health services delivery.
