Abstract

Short abstract:
The diagnosis of serious illness creates a fissure from the known self. How do individuals cope with their new role as patients and how could healthcare services better-serve the ill? When the dark-side of ‘empowerment’ rears its head how do consumers negotiate the burden of high stakes choices?
