Patients as Policy Actors offers groundbreaking accounts of one of the health field's most important developments of the last fifty years--the rise of more consciously patient-centred care and policymaking. The authors in this volume illustrate, from multiple disciplinary perspectives, the unexpected ways that patients can matter as both agents and objects of health care policy yet nonetheless too often remain silent, silenced, misrepresented, or ignored. The volume concludes with a unique epilogue outlining principles for more effectively integrating patient perspectives into a pluralistic conception of policy-making. With the recent enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, patients' and consumers' roles in American health care require more than ever the careful analysis and attention exemplified by this innovative volume.

This strong volume brings together contributors of different disciplinary and experiential backgrounds, broadening our understanding of how patient voices influence American health care policy.--Elizabeth Toon "University of Manchester" "This is a fascinating book that greatly enhances our understanding of the complexities surrounding the place of the patient in modern health care." -- "Social History of Medicine" "Despite all of the recent study of patient activism, there has been little attempt to synthesize its achievements and limitations--making the scholarship as fragmented as the activism itself. Patients as Policy Actors fills this void. It should be required reading for anyone interested in how individual patients might mobilize together to help effect meaningful health care reform in the United States."--Barron H. Lerner, MD, PhD "When Illness Goes Public: Celebrity Patients and How We Look at Medicine" "A valuable, timely book. It is a guide to developments in the field, critical with the new federal health care law soon to become fully operational. Highly recommended." -- "Choice" "Patients as Policy Actors provides food for thought on the representation of patients' voices in a variety of health care arenas. This edited anthology is both academic and intended to foster change. It evaluates patient effectiveness, from patients' struggles to be heard to their successful mobilization of resources for shared interests." -- "Bulletin of the History of Medicine"
