  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Patient participation, patient involvement, patient empowerment… an expanding evolution in patient care. But are patients sufficiently informed regarding the right treatment for their disease? Isn’t the doctor best-placed to decide on the right therapy for the right patient? In this session we aim to discuss with the audience the different angles of the current evolution.
