Participation in Health and Welfare Services - Professional Concepts and Lived Experience
Edited by Arne H Eide, Staffan Josephsson and Kjersti Vik
Important values in health care and rehabilitation are to enable people to live meaningfully through active participation in their own care and service as well as in their life.
This book explores the concept of participation and derives different perceptions and uses of the term in healthcare, welfare and rehabilitation. It also addresses how service providers can activate and encourage participation in addition to the actual services. The book contributes to knowledge and discussion about the influence and involvement in everyday life. It also discusses participation as an international research topic.
The three editors Professor Arne H Eide, Sintef and Professor Kjersti Vik., NTNU both from Norway, as well as Professor Staffan Josephsson from KI will present the book’s main contents and messages. The presentations will be given in English .Contact person: Staffan Josephsson
