“Nothing about us without us”—patient partnership in medical conferences (open access)



The BMJ

 Key messages
  • Involving patients in medical conferences can help delegates to understand problems that matter most to patients and their caregivers
  • Involving patients can spark collaborations with patients in healthcare design, education, research, and clinical care improvements
  • Patient should be included in the creation of conference programmes and selection of speakers
  • Requirements of attending patients, such as facilities for self care and travel expenses, should be considered when planning conferences
