Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
I am organizing a Special Issue on “Health Care from Patients' Perspective” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, please refer to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
This IJERPH Special Issue on “Health Care from Patients' Perspective” will focus on patients’ perspectives as experts, on their challenges and healthcare-related experiences embedded in a biopsychosocial framework. Research on experiences regarding health, health care, but also illness will build the core of this issue by focussing on qualitative research methods mainly from patients’ perspectives and or their corresponding surroundings. They will not only provide insights into complex healthcare situations, ethical related questions but also into patient-centered challenges as a possible starting point for improving healthcare systems and or policy. An interprofessional perspective on health care providers, family members, or key caregivers of patients, clients, and users are most welcome. In addition, we are hoping for contributions from the medical humanities, and topics on community health including health literacy.
This Special Issue offers an opportunity to publish high-quality papers on health and illness narratives to health-related topics based on qualitative research methods including participatory research methodology from the whole spectrum of care as health promotion, prevention, chronic diseases, rehabilitation, or palliative care. We also welcome high-quality systematic and scoping reviews, protocol papers, position statements related to these matters, short communications as well as discussion papers. I would be pleased if this Special Issue serves as a trigger for the provision of insightful data for the design of teaching relevant studies based on narratives that are implemented in study programs on health care professionals such as therapists, nurses, midwives, medicine and other professions.
