Canadian Association of Allied Health Programs


Lunch and Learn
November 30, 2022

Are you still wondering how to integrate Patient and Family Engagement in an innovative way?

CAAHP, in partnership with EQual Canada, organized a Lunch and Learn for you to hear, learn, and discuss how other institutions with accredited programs have tackled this criterion effectively.

Two panelists from our college network have shared with us an overview of their strategies toward the integration of patient partners into their programs.


Laura Thomas, Med Ultrasound, CRGS, DMS – Associate Dean Allied Health, Mohawk College

Kelly Lindberg, BA, RTR – Curriculum coordinator, Medica Diagnostic, Saskatchewan Polytechnic

We have used a padlet. The padlet provides an opportunity to share ideas and questions that address the scaffolded nature of the patients as partners journey. Please consult and contribute to this ongoing discussion.

You can access the Saskatchewan Polytech Presentation and Mohawk College Presentation in PDF format and the video recording of the event.
