Health Advocacy Training for Medical Residents
Moving beyond ‘advocacy for’ to ‘advocacy with’
Health Advocacy remains the most challenging CanMEDS role to define, teach and assess.
We collaborated with community members, individual patients and caregivers, physicians and trainees to co-create workshop materials and resources to help residents learn about different kinds of health advocacy that they might engage in through collaboration with community-based organizations.
Workshop materials and resources are available here
Developed with a Royal College/Associated Medical Services CanMEDS Research Development Grant from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (2014).
