MOLINA ESCRIBANO, Francisca; CASTANO MORENO, Encarna  and  MASSO OROZCO, Javier. Educational experience with the expert patient. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2008, vol.2, n.4, pp.178-180. ISSN 2386-8201.

The doctor-patient relationship has changed considerably in recent years, from a paternalistic model to one in which the patient’s autonomy has acquired a significant relevance. The patient has become an active individual, with clear rights, such as that of being well informed about his/her illness and participation in decisions that can affect their condition, but also certain obligations such as being responsible for their illness and health. We present an experiment carried out in our clinic of a patient who had taken on responsibility for his obesity since he was diagnosed, who clearly identified the reasons for following our therapeutic indications, the difficulties he came across during the treatment and how he resolved some of them.
