Justifying Patient Self-Management -- Evidence Based Medicine or the Primacy of the First Person Perspective
Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy: A European Journal 2005; 8(2): 159-164
Patient self-management programs have become increasingly popular and are now also receiving official endorsements. This paper analyses two possible types of positive justifications for promoting patient self-management: evidence-based and patient- centred justifications. It is argued that evidence-based justifications, although important politically are deficient and that the primary justification for patient self-management must be a patient-centred justification focusing on the patient's privileged access to his or her own lived body.
