Conference on patient advocacy from a public health perspective

Patient advocacy is a response to breakdowns in communication among patients, providers, insurers, employers, family members, and others at a time when patients, often suffering from acute or chronic illnesses or from life-threatening injuries, confront an almost insurmountable complex health care system, according to Clarence Pearson, a 1952 graduate from the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina. This grant supports the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Public Health in conducting a conference in fall 2003 that will focus on patient advocacy from a public health perspective. This one and one-half day conference will focus on patient advocacy from a public health perspective, bringing together approximately 75 key representatives from public health and social services, health care administrators and providers, insurance representatives, policy makers, patient advocates, and other stakeholders.
