Authenticity to Action - Involving Service Users and Carers in Higher Education

3 Day Conference

7 - 9 November 2007

Grange Over Sands, Cumbria


We are pleased to announce that the full programme is now available on-line for this exciting international conference focused on the involvement of health and social care service users in higher education.


We hope that the conference will build upon the successful first 'Where's The Patient Voice in Health Professional Education' Conference, November 3-5 2005, Vancouver, Canada hosted by the University of British Columbia


The conference is supported by the work of The Comensus Project at the University of Central Lancashire. For more information visit our web site at


The conference will bring together service users and carers, students and academics with a view to sharing different forms of knowledge and expertise in a mutually supportive atmosphere. We are working towards seeking funding to make bursaries available to support attendance of individual students and service users/carers. We are also looking for organisations interested in making a contribution to the fund to support bursaries.


We aim to make the whole conference as interactive as possible and accessible to all participants. Participants are encouraged to be prepared to present their work and facilitate sessions in plain language.





The full conference programme is now available on the conference website
