Description:A software application measures the intensity of patients’ self-advocacy, i.e. their approach to treatment proposed by their general practitioner. Patient self-advocacy is based on three dimensions. These are the amount of information about the disease, the ability to express one’s own opinion on the disease and its treatment, and the ability and intensity of rejecting treatment proposed by the general practitioner.
