Abstract

The expression expert patient appeared about ten years ago. It defines the role of patients who are actively involved in their disease management. Most clinical oncologists are challenged by expert patients. Patient's expertise and complementary medicine are closely linked. Physicians respecting expert patients have to find a positive attitude towards patient self aide concepts. The medical skill to manage expert patients is increasingly important and new tools are being developed for support.
