Abstract

poster previewIn spite of many challenges, there is a good potential that diabetes care in Mistissini can progress to a true patient-HCP partnership. By involving patients in the quality improvement process of health services, we can obtain much better insight into their expectations, needs and priorities regarding the diabetes care they receive. Recognition of patients’ expertise and personal experience is a critical element for building a successful patient-HCP partnership approach that empowers not only patients, but also the whole community.
