Finding, Inviting and Team Building with Patient Partners in Practice and Education
The importance of engaging individuals, families, and communities in co-creation of practice and education is increasingly recognized in order to achieve Quadruple Aim outcomes, achieve health equity, and ensure person-centered care that acknowledges the need to address diversity and inclusion.
This plenary will provide practical insights and strategies to engage individuals and community members to improve practice and education outcomes. Whether you are new to engaging the community or are already experiencing the benefits with community advisors, this session will prepare you to take the next steps. Attendees will learn how to recruit, prepare and work with individuals as advisors in interprofessional practice and education settings. Together, we are moving toward action for outcomes that matter most in health, healthcare and the education of the future health workforce.
