Participatory Medicine


I have been writing about Narrative Medicine and today, I came across Participatory Medicine which is what I have been dreaming about. Except, I don’t think that it should only be used by doctors and specialists. I wonder whether it can be used in the field of psychiatry. If there is anyone out there who can give me more information on this subject, it will be so helpful to so many people.

Below this, you will see the link to Professor Bas Bloem on TED at  MAASTRICHT. This doctor thinks that it is time for all doctors to descend from their ivory towers.
