520    Health care is changing fast and patients' experiences and
       expectations are also changing. Developments in 
       information technology and biotechnology are already 
       having a profound influence on the way health services are
       delivered and the organization of health care is under 
       reform in most countries. Patients no longer see 
       themselves as passive recipients of care: increasingly 
       they expect to be involved in all decisions that affect 
       them. This book reports the results of a major study 
       carried out in eight different European countries to look 
       at health policy dilemmas through the eyes of the patient.
       Drawing on literature reviews, focus groups and a survey 
       of 1,000 people in each of the eight countries, the book 
       addresses the following questions:. . Why might the 
       patients of the future be different?. . What will patients
       and citizens expect from health systems?. . Will the 
       public be willing to pay more for better health care?. . 
       What kind of value trade-offs are people prepared to make,
       for example between prompt access and continuity of care, 
       or between choice and equity?. . How will patients access 
       information, advice and treatment?. . How should policy-
       makers and providers react to patients' desire for greater
       autonomy?. . How can public confidence in health systems 
       be maintained in the future?. The European Patient of the 
       Future is a clear, jargon-free text which will be a key 
       resource for all health service professionals, health 
       policy analysts and patient advocates
