Have you been asked to speak about your experiences to a health organisation or health professionals? Do you want to share your experiences and make a change to the way patients are treated?
Then this workshop, run by InHealth Associates, is for you. (It’s also for staff who want to make things better for patients).
The workshop is designed to equip you with the knowledge and strategies for telling your story, sharing your lived experience, in the most effective and powerful way possible to really help make change happen.
Patients and carers are often called to tell their story at conferences, Board meetings or training days. Sharing your story can be powerful, but there can be challenges.
There are other challenges too.
Run by David Gilbert, a former mental health service user, the webinar will be a safe, open and supportive environment in which to share your experiences.
We will look at where sharing your story fits in the wider NHS feedback and public engagement work.
Sharing our own experiences of what works and does not work, what helps and gets in the way, and what we’ve learned, we will then explore different ways of sharing lived experience to get the most impact:
The session will be for up to 20 people and last three hours, with a 15 minute break. It will be delivered by Zoom. There will be two breakout room sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to share learning more intimately with two or three others.
Suggested donation between £20 – £40. If you really can't afford this, get in touch with me at [email protected] and I will do what I can. But I have to cover my costs.
This workshop is run by InHealth Associates – a network of specialists in patient-centred improvement, patient and public engagement and patient leadership. We want patients, service users, carers, communities and citizens to work in true partnership with professionals and healthcare organisations.
I went to this brilliant workshop last week. There were super interesting conversations about how to ‘share your story’ with health services at events/meetings/training in a powerful, thought-provoking way that feels right, safer, & not so ‘icky’ for you. 11/10 would recommend.
Would encourage health care professionals to attend this - thought provoking and made me see how we should (as opposed to current practice) engage those with lived experience in meaningful ways. Zoom in from home!
David Gilbert is like a Sherpa on Mount Everest. Tomorrow’s improvers in healthcare will come with both learned and/ or lived experience. It is important to demand knowledge and wisdom in a patient partner. This is where you learn from the best
Took David’s course and found it very helpful to experience the wisdom ‘at source’ from his many, many years of experience and reflection
