Background and Description
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.
