Research has shown that the interaction with healthcare professionals can have great significance for whether people are empowered to manage long-term health problems.
This questionnaire asks not only whether the healthcare professionals are nice and kind, but whether they support you to manage the particular challenges you experience with the health problems in your everyday life.
The questionnaire contains a number of statements concerning the interaction between you and the healthcare professional in the management of your situation/condition/illness.
