The Patient Voice
We are proud that the 2023 Infoway Partnership Conference will be Patients Included.
This means that we are “committed to incorporating the experience of patients as experts in living with their condition while ensuring that they are neither excluded nor exploited.” For more information on the Patients Included charter, please visit the website.
Patients Included status recognizes that the event has satisfied all five criteria as identified in the Patients Included charter.
We have partnered with two patient advisors, who have worked with us from the earliest stages of planning the Partnership Conference to shape the program themes, select speakers, advise on the patient scholarship program and ensure the best possible experience for patient/caregiver attendees. One patient advisor resides locally, and the other outside of the province in which the conference will be hosted. Both will be involved in the in-person development and hosting of patient networking spaces. They will be present during the entirety of the conference, and they will partake in feedback sessions post-conference to ensure strengths and opportunities have been captured for reflection in future events.
