The name change marks a new era for the Division since it became part of the Office of the Vice-Provost Health in July. The move was part of a university initiative, 'UBC Health', to better integrate health and human service programs.
Over 100 community members, faculty and students took part in the consultation process to select the new name. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Of nearly 200 abstracts from 14 countries, the highest calibre abstracts were selected to be part of Patient's Voice. The full conference program is now available.
The conference will look at the progress that has been made since the first ‘Where’s the Patient’s Voice?’ conference was held in Vancouver, Canada in 2005.
The conference is about practice, innovation and theory that embed the patient/client/service user voice in health professional education. It is an opportunity to share examples of how health professional education can be enriched by patient involvement. Over three days, participants will present examples of collaborative projects between educators and patient/community groups and examine the outcomes of these partnerships for faculty, patients, students and the learning environment.
