Pfizer Personal Empowerment Portal
Ulcerative Colitis
Patient-centered Tools for Education & Engagement
Pfizer is committed to helping people with uclerative colitis (UC) become empowered to play an important role in managing their medical condition. What does personal empowerment mean? It is a process that may help patients work with their medical team to act on medical and lifestyle issues that they, together, define as important. Empowerment means becoming a partner with the healthcare professional (HCP) team to participate in shared decision-making on personal treatment-related issues and options.
