We go to Barcelona!

Last month Angela Towle presented the results of an international study on the sustainability of patient as educator initiatives at the 2016 AMEE annual conference in Barcelona, Spain.

The preliminary results from this study were presented at ‘Where’s the Patient’s Voice in Health Professional Education?’ last November.

AMEE is an International Association for Medical Education and the conference attracts over 3000 delegates. For the first time at a major international medical education conference, a session (called ‘The Patient’) specifically focused on patient involvement in medical education.


The Vancouver Statement

In case you missed it! The Vancouver Statement is now available!

Developed by an international and multidisciplinary group of leaders in the field at the international conference on 'Where's the Patient's Voice in Health Professional Education?' in 2015, the statement sets out priorities for the involvement of patients in the education of health and social care professionals.
