When one hears the term patient advocate, the image of a nurse is often the first professional that comes to mind, and indeed the role of ‘nursing advocacy’ has been widely discussed in the literature. It should be remembered however, that the nursing profession does not hold a monopoly on patient advocacy; all health care professionals, regulated or not, have a responsibility to advocate for their patients.
