Patient empowerment as a key component in the future of healthcare systems is the focus of this concise in-depth analysis. It begins by defining patient empowerment as a collaborative partnership linking patients, providers, and systems, and examines the roles of health literacy, provider-patient and system-patient communication, and patient-centered care in the empowerment process. Models of positive and negative empowerment identify optimum conditions when patient and provider participate in service design and delivery as well as pitfalls and risks to patient and system when goals and input are mismatched. The book also translates concepts into practice with guidelines for empowerment strategies at the provider and organization levels to improve patient outcomes and system sustainability.

Included in the coverage:

· Empowering healthcare organizations to empower patients

· A re-design of the patient-provider partnership

· Patient empowerment: a requisite for sustainability

· The risks of value co-destruction in service systems

· The need for enlightening and managing the dark side of patient empowerment

· Disentangling the relationship between individual health literacy and patient empowerment

Straightforwardly written as a call for proactive change, The Bright Side and the Dark Side of Patient Empowerment is an illuminating text for scholars interested in patient empowerment and patient engagement, policymakers and managers operating in the healthcare field, and healthcare and social care providers.

Preface
Introduction
Chapter I: Contextualizing Patient EmpowermentThe first chapter introduces the main topic of the volume. In particular, it provides the reader with a contextualization of patient empowerment, pointing out the attributes that build this construct. Drawing on a systematic literature review, the origins of the patient empowerment concept are outlined. Besides, the different perspectives suggested by the scientific literature are discussed, in an attempt to devise an overarching definition of patient empowerment. In light of the theoretical framework depicted in the first section, patient empowerment is presented as a crucial ingredient of the health reforms inspiring the future shapes of the healthcare service system in Western Countries. Patient empowerment implies a transition from the traditional biomedical/industrial model of care to a patient-centered approach to care, which conceives the patient as a value co-creator. The main approaches and tools to implement patient empowerment are described in the third section. It suggests a tentative recipe for patient empowerment, emphasizing the role of healthcare organizations in enabling patients. Both individual health literacy and organizational health literacy turn out to be crucial to realize the full potential of patient empowerment.

Chapter II: The Bright Side of Patient EmpowermentThe second chapter focuses on the bright side of patient empowerment. First of all, it builds a link between patient empowerment and value co-creation. Empowered patients are more willing to participate in health decision-making and to establish a co-creating partnership with healthcare providers. In other word, patient empowerment reconceptualises the patient-provider relationship, identifying the former as an active agent, rather than as a passive consumer of health services. As well, patient empowerment is considered to be a requisite to service co-production. In fact, empowered patients are more willing to be involved in the design and delivery of health services, thus performing as real service co-producers. From this point of view, patient empowerment paves the way for lower healthcare costs, thus contributing to enhancing the sustainability of the healthcare service system. In addition, patient empowerment is associated with better health outcomes. Ultimately, the involvement of patients in the provision of health services allows a better distribution of responsibilities between the patients and the providers of care, reducing inappropriate access to health services.

Chapter III: The Dark Side of Patient EmpowermentThe third and concluding section discusses the dark side of patient empowerment. Drawing on the most recent development in the fields of service science and healthcare management, patient empowerment itself is assumed to be not sufficient to realize patient engagement. Indeed, patient empowerment does not pave the way for patient involvement whether or not it is associated with a process of patients' enablement. Empowered patients who are not able or unwilling to actively participate in the design and delivery of care are at risk of co-destroying value. From this standpoint, the second section provides several examples of co-destruction in the healthcare environment. This analysis paves the way for the enlightening of the dark side of patient empowerment. Theoretical and empirical insights to push forward the scientific knowledge in the field of patient empowerment concludes this volume, encouraging further developments.
