Patient Empowerment

Patient Empowerment:

What does this mean to you?

·                     Health, as Attitude, can be defined as being successful in coping with pain, sickness, and death as a Normal Vicissitude of Life.  And, successful coping requires always being in control of your life.

·                     Health belongs to the individual. And, the individual has the prime responsibility for their own health.

·                     The individual's capacity for growth and self-determination is paramount.

·                     Health care professionals cannot empower people; only people can only empower themselves.

·                     You Hold the Power, If You But Grasp It!
