Empowering the expert patient

This workshop will be held in Birmingham.

Do you work with citizens who are keen to develop their skills and find ways to influence services? Are you keen to support them to find opportunities to share their stories and messages of change?

The Empowering the Expert Patient Programme is an exciting opportunity for citizens who already have some experience of being involved with services and want to take further steps along their leadership journey.

The Programme is an intensive and rewarding 3-day programme which is part of the West Midlands Leadership Academy’s developing Citizen Leadership Framework. The programme will equip participants with the skills they need to act as expert patients and help them to influence services through effective sharing of messages of change.

This 3 day programme will take place on 5th, 11th and 17th March 2020 and will be held in Birmingham.
