The second discussion on Sept 30th, 2020 focused on sharing examples of successful public and patient involvement used in other health systems. We invited some leading patient partners/advocates from Canada and the UK, to share their experiences of public patient involvement across healthcare in the UK and Canada.
Patient partner and advocate, Carol Munt, discussed the real value and impact in involving patients as co-producers drawing on her own experiences in the UK where she has worked as a patient partner with the NHS across a number of groups and initiatives.
Julie Drury, Strategic Lead – Patient Partnership at the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement, was previously the chair of Ontario’s first-ever health advisory council, the Patient and Family Advisory Council for the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. In this position, Julie helped advise the government on key health care priorities that had a real impact on patient care and patient experiences in Ontario.
Also, Laura Magahy Executive Director, Sláintecare, joined us to discuss future commitments and the proposed framework for patient involvement in Irish healthcare.
