The objective of this study was to determine patients' perception on the possibility of changing a tradition-based practice to a more patient-empowering service, thus demonstrating that nurses can make a difference in providing a more patient-centred environment. The study revealed that the patients themselves wanted to be included in the decision-making process and actively embrace change.
