Contemporary disease self-management programs aim to renegotiate the terms onwhich patients participate in their own health care. Though the notion of ‘patient 2.0’ has mainly been used to speak to patient empowerment through IT, we therefore propose to view self-management as eliciting “the patient” in a diff erent shape. In this paper, we explore the embedded assumptions, imagined potentials and concrete practices of the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), in order to understand how this program reconfigures a particular form of global patient.
