Reaching over 1400 people in the community and university, this newsletter promotes patient and community involvement in health professional education at UBC.
The Vancouver Statement accepted for publication
The Vancouver Statement about the involvement of patients in the education of health and social care professionals was developed at the international conference on 'Where's the Patient's Voice in Health Professional Education?' held in Vancouver in November 2015.
The 'Vancouver Group' met again in March. It was the third meeting of the group who has started a local network to support patient and community involvement in health professional education.
The group will meet on April 4th to confirm a vision and draft mission statements. Stay tuned!
