By Tom Marshall, Professor of Public Health and Primary Care

Whether we are investigating patients’ experience of health care, designing services, prioritising public resources or even undertaking research, there is always a role for engaging with patients and the public. This was a specific topic in the Health Care Evaluation and Commissioning module that ran in late January. The BMJ devotes an entire section to Patient Centred Care, with examples of how patients can be engaged in a number of ways from sharing access to records, supporting self-management of long-term conditions and even reshaping health care.
