For over 100 years, patients have been engaged in the education of health professionals. Furthermore, research has shown the need for enhanced engagements given the many benefits derived from early learnings and the many positive impacts that such a philosophy has on learners, educators, patients, and overall health systems.
CAAHP hosted this Lunch and Learn in partnership with EQual Canada. This session has explored the status of patient engagement in health professional education (HPE), from an education accreditation point of view and provide a collaborative platform for education stakeholders to discuss the next evolutionary step of this philosophy.
