We are so excited to debut our newest Toolkit: Sharing Personal Journey(s) Public Advisory Engagement
The creation of this toolkit has been two years in the making as our Centre staff team invested their heart, soul, grit and determination to land on this final product. You will find this a resource that has been structured to include multiple parameters of engagement that involve sharing your personal lived experience (patient) and/or family (caregiver) experience for public disclosure.
There is an emphasis on developing and planning what to share, and how to safely share in ways that are effective and meaningful. Opportunities to engage can look different, and one opportunity usually leads to many others (speaking at events, being on a panel, media, narratives, video, writing, blogs, vlogs, research, quality Improvement etc). It also involves working with a multitude of different people from different walks of life. It is a skill and a craft; but most of all it is your life. We encourage you to use this toolkit and share it with anyone you think might benefit from having access to a resource that can assist them in crafting their story for meaningful change.
In the months to come we will be building off of this Toolkit to offer webinars and workshops that will assist in actionizing the recommendations contain within.
We invite you to connect with us if you have questions regarding this Toolkit or any of our other products or trainings
