If you are interested in building your capacity in engagement & co-design with clients, lived/living experience, patient, family/caregiver, residents and citizens this is a GREAT opportunity for you and/or your organization.
Support House’s Centre for Innovation in Peer Support, Trillium Health Partners Institute for Better Health and the Ontario Caregiver Organization are co-branded. The work was led by Dr. Kerry Kuluski who holds the Dr. Mathias Gysler Research Chair in Patient and Family Centred Care, Institute for Better Health, Trillium Health Partners and is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto.
The learning series was co-designed over the course of a year with patient and caregiver partners, researchers, trainees, health system leaders and providers. A terms of reference was created, a core list of competencies was developed, and a prioritized set of topics was curated through working group activities and meetings with various content experts. Presentations to the Ministry of Health and Ontario Health Team Communities of Practice occurred to ensure alignment with other OHT resources and activities.
Why is the content in the learning series important?
Engaging with lived/living experience, patients, family, caregivers and community members is a critical component of a well-functioning and high quality health care system. Learning core competencies in patient, caregiver and community engagement is required. The learning series offers an important introduction to core concepts and elements of engagement.
Participants will gain knowledge, reflect on skills and attitudes for effective patient, family and caregiver engagement throughout Ontario’s health care system. There is no charge for this learning series.
