Patients as partners in medical education, practice, and governance (HLOL #218)

by | Dec 1, 2021

Professor Jason Last, MD, is University Dean of Students at University College Dublin in Ireland. Building on his experience as a practicing physician, Last has led and participated in many graduate medical education initiatives and programs. This includes work in patient education and advocacy.

In this podcast, Professor Last talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • The value of learning about patients’ experiences of illness.
  • How the patient’s perspective can help trainees and professionals regain their sense of empathy that might have gotten lost.
  • Examples and suggestions about ways we all can invite patients to be our partners in education, research, and governance.
