Social and structural factors influencing the meaningful and inclusive involvement of people with lived experience (PWLE) in CPD

Thursday, September 28, 2023, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Central Time

Free for SACME Members / $30 Non-Members

Session Overview

In this journal club we will explore how equitably partnerships among different groups, such as patients, healthcare providers and researchers can enhance and create innovative CPD opportunities. There will be opportunities to discuss how to work with integrity and empathy all while meeting the expectations within our current health professional environment.

Led by our presenter and author(s) of the article we have suggested for pre-reading, we will explore strategies and concepts, like reflexivity and positionality as mechanisms for including people with lived experience in CPD initiatives.

Join us for an interesting and important session that is designed for anyone who is interested or curious about working equitably with patients and/or families to co-create CPD initiatives. We are welcoming your thoughts and perspectives.
