This chapter examines how user involvement or the involvement of the patient in the palliative care team can be achieved, sustained, and enhanced. It explores the ideological basis of user involvement and discusses the components within the patient-professional relationship which are the ingredients of user involvement. It also analyses individual and collective approaches to hearing and releasing the user voice in palliative care and highlights some dilemmas and practice issues in ensuring a strong consumer voice and patient-centred care.

Keywords:   user involvement, palliative care, patient-professional relationship, consumer voice, patient-centred care
