Authenticity to Action Conference edition:3th location:Preston date:11 - 12 march 2015
In the last decade, the roles of service users, their environments and their organisations are growing significantly, resulting in more involvement possibilities for service users and family carers. In Belgium, involvement of users and carers in nurse education is getting much more attention but we still have to go a long way. In this showcase, we will report on our ongoing process to move from limited involvement to growing involvement of users and carers. We recently started up a working group of service users, lecturers & staff members in order to grow to a more strategic involvement of users and carers in the education program. In our showcase we would like to share and discuss with the audience our successes and challenges we‘re facing in our move forward. We‘ll reflect together on the ongoing process to assure sustainable networks with service users and to facilitate the teaching and training program of students in a collaboratively and supportive way. We ‘ll also report and discuss the kickoff of a bottom-up co-design (users & professionals) of an innovative training program to become an expert by experience in MH care.
