The Patient as Agent of Health and Health Care

Autonomy in Patient-Centered Care for Chronic Conditions

Mark Sullivan MD, PhD

  • Provides a new theory of the patient as the primary agent of health and health care.
  • Takes an approach that advances beyond bioethics, patient-centered outcomes research, health psychology, and pathophysiology by providing a broader and deeper understanding of patients' capacities for action and health
  • Argues that health care reform must take place at deeper level than has been considered to date.
