Why do Patients Protest? Collective Action Processes in People with Chronic Illnesses: A Psychosocial Perspective

Augusta Isabella Alberici, D. Mazzoni

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

Despite the relevance of the topic, an exhaustive psychosocial reflection on the processes that may facilitate patients’ protest is still missing. The chapter provides a theoretical and empirical overview of psychosocial pathways for patients’ collective action. Five core factors are reviewed: perceived injustice, group efficacy, group identification, moral convictions and social embeddedness. Each of them provides a different explanation of collective action processes and is examined for its potential impact among patients. The chapter closes suggesting some core elements for a theoretical explanation of patients’ collective action and its relationship with patient engagement. Practical and theoretical implications of patients’ collective action are discussed to identify new directions for future research and interventions.
