Strand 9: Social, economic and policy drivers in healthcare education

Service user involvement (SUI) has clearly become a key aspect of Higher Education (HE). Education providers are now required to ensure that SUI is embedded in the design and delivery of healthcare education and training. This approach is thought to enhance student understanding of patient’s perspectives (Blackhall et al 2012; Chambers and Hickey 2012; Health and Care Professions Council 2013). Most importantly to teach and learn about patient experience according to Health Foundation (2011) requires input from people who experience care – “to learn about, learn from and with people who are experts about their own lives” (Health Foundation, 2011, p.9)
