10 Promoting patient-centred healthcare around the world Conclusions The strain on healthcare systems is a massive global problem Meaningful patient engagement must be central to efforts to refocus health systems on people and patients. Issues of access to healthcare are integrally linked with provision of information and patient involvement in the delivery of healthcare and development of health policies The best way to achieve patient-centred healthcare is to have an approach based on strong values of respect, partnership and equity – no patient-centred healthcare without cooperation of all stakeholders IAPO welcomes and supports initiatives to reorient the healthcare system to be patient-centred
