Show Summary Details


This chapter suggests that the time has come to flag up the patient movement as an emancipatory movement. It explains that though the two basic principles of recognised emancipation movements, justice and equality, have not been adopted as principles by radical patient activists, they are already implicit in radical patient activism's principles. The chapter also discusses the healthcare benefits of considering the patient movement as an emancipatory movement.

Keywords: patient movement; emancipatory movement; justice; equality; healthcare
