In all aspects of medicine – hospital administration, policymaking, and medical education – there has been a growing recognition of the role of lived experience in the production of knowledge and expertise. People with lived experience of chronic illnesses like HIV are seen as sources of knowledge about their bodies and medical experiences. As such, patients are being engaged in the training of healthcare professionals. But, not all patient engagement is created equal.
This online conference will bring together medical students, health care professionals, community members and people living with HIV to discuss how patients can become involved in medical education.
