HHP Patient Advocacy Program
Patient Advocacy includes advocacy provided by trained volunteers as well as by professional advocates.
Advocacy is about supporting people who are not being heard about what they want. An advocate listens to a patient experiencing difficulty in order to understand their position, inform them about choices and options and then help them take action.
Patient advocacy is about empowering patients to use their right of autonomy in the healthcare system. It’s about informing patients about resources and inspiring confidence and ownership in their care plan.
Patient advocacy is not and does not involve giving patients advice or counseling, deciding on how to prioritize options, providing personal opinion, or withholding personal health information.
Patient advocacy is a growing trend, studies show that healthcare outcomes are better when patients are proactive about their health. There is no better time to help decrease barriers to patient advocacy and make a global impact on how patient advocacy is delivered.
