Bridging Barriers: Voices of Spinal Cord Injury
November 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
This workshop is part of the Patient and Community Voices (PCV) workshop series, hosted by the Patient and Community Partnership for Education (PCPE) in the Office of UBC Health. This session is hosted in partnership with Spinal Cord Injury BC.
In this workshop, personal narratives and case studies will be shared to illustrate the range of ways in which spinal cord injury can affect individuals, including the physical, emotional, psychosocial and financial barriers. Students will learn about the unique experiences of people living with spinal cord injury and what they can do as health professionals to provide support.
The PCV workshop series consists of inter-professional workshops in which students learn directly from patients and community members through their stories and expertise. Workshops are developed, evaluated and refined by students, patients/community members and UBC faculty working together in a participatory educational design.
