Abstract:
Consumers of health care who have a long term disability or chronic condition are volunteers in our health care professional programs as teachers. A unique opportunity offered to learners is to integrate a step from the theoretical component to clinical practice in their programmes that helps ensure they are well able to adapt theoretical learning with practice. Learners are tutored by consumers early in their programme with monitoring, by faculty, of learning through weekly seminars, keeping a journal that is assessed weekly, and feedback from the consumer. The lived experience course provides an opportunity for health science students to learn from consumers what it means to be a health care recipient. The students are not in a therapeutic relationship with the consumers in this course, they are there to listen and learn what the experience of being a patient, client or consumer is like. Health care professional students visit consumers in the home or community in small groups. Student feedback has indicated that this is a profound and valuable experience as they learn about the inequality of relationships that develops and how to think about planning and delivering health care that is patient or client centred.
