Patient & Community Partnership for Education (PCPE) brings the expertise of patients, caregivers, and people with lived experience of the social determinants of health into the education of health professional students at UBC. We are world leaders in the field.
Our aim is to enhance the education of students so that future health professionals provide care that is patient/client-centred and meets society’s needs. Our work is founded in the philosophy of shared decision-making and patient partnerships in health care.
We develop, implement and evaluate innovative educational interventions that are both multi-professional and interprofessional, drawing students from across all the health and human services programs at UBC.
Our work is both informed by, and contributes to, health professions education scholarship.
