"Empowered" patients create advantages for themselves and communities by monitoring their own needs and reducing loads on overstretched resources. But the patient-consumer can be seen as isolated and overly responsible for choices about their care. This volume reflects on isolation and relationships in health care, including relationships between patients and their peers or families as well as those they have with clinicians. It is developed from selected papers presented at the 9th Global Conference on Making Sense of Health, Illness, and Disease, Oxford (UK), September 2010, representing qualitative and quantitative studies from Europe, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Australia. Contributing authors explore implications of their research for problems related to individualisation and relationships within health care. They reveal situations in which the absence of relational links led to misunderstandings; describe relationships informing peoples' understandings of illness; and present attempts to re-imagine relationships between patients and practitioners.
