Knowledge is Experience: What is the value of patient experience? Through their personal experiences with disease, patients develop a unique understanding and knowledge of their illness. Does this subjective expertise have a wider value for medicine, science and society, and if so, how do we articulate it in a way that is useful to others? Join the Mason Institute to celebrate their 2nd anniversary with a thought-provoking discussion on the value of patient experience with leading patient advocates and practitioners. Attendees are also encouraged to join in the conversation and offer their own thoughts on patient knowledge and experience. Speakers: Graeme Laurie - Director, Mason Institute Alastair Kent - Director, Genetic Alliance UK Jan Anderson - Training & Support Coordinator, Neurological Alliance of Scotland Heather Goodare - Patient Advocate Gill Hollis - Health Advocate Louise Locock - Director of Applied Research, Health Experience Research Group, University of Oxford
