Abstract

The study was a response to both the implementation of pilot Department of Health Expert Patient Programmes (Department of Health, 2001) (EPP) within primary care and the increasingly common phenomenon of active and informed patients, termed throughout this report as expert patients. We were interested in finding out what helps or hinders patient expertise in self-management of long term conditions, and particularly wanted to explore the differences between lay and professional led self-management courses, and how health professionals responded to expert patients.
