Abstract

Patient education has evolved from its medically-dominated and narrow origin in patient teaching to support of patient empowerment in interpersonal, organizational, and policy domains relevant to health. This essay reflects on both the historical and contemporary context of patient education in the US and explores implications of the empowerment movement on new initiatives and directions in patient education. By using diabetes education as an exemplar, innovations in patient activation and empowerment are explored and future directions and challenges to the field are considered.
