PERESTELO-PEREZ, Lilisbeth et al. Promoting citizen participation in healthcare through Gac Sanit [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.5, pp.466-467. ISSN 0213-9111.

This project supports the initiative promoted by the Spanish National Health System to provide informational materials, in printed or interactive format, to encourage public participation in decision making and healthcare. We present the newly created, a web platform aimed at people with chronic diseases with a high socioeconomic impact, such as breast cancer, depression, and diabetes. This platform uses scientific methodology and contains three information service modules (Patients' experiences, Shared decision making, and Research needs), aimed at promoting health education for patients and families.

Keywords : Patient participation; Decision making; Physician-patient relations; Decision support techniques; Patient satisfaction.
