Achieving the goal of providing quality health care requires he;lth professionals to deterinine what they understand by health and how they choose to implement health care. Increasingly in the twenty-first century health professionals, provider institutions, health professions, and clients are seeking collaborative forms of health care where clients participate in clinical decision-making and health care actions. In this environment health professionals are called upon to be educators, consultants, and partners rather. than deliverers of intervention in the pursuit of illness remediation. In this context education has important roles to play as a practice approach, a therapeutic strategy, a means of quality assurance, and a communication medium with other professionals, clients, and their carers.
