Humanity in Healthcare Series: Partnering with Patients: Is there really any other way?

Wednesday, November 24, 2021
5:00 PM – 6:00 PM


Anne O’Riordan, Patient Partner

Recovering academic! A healthcare provider/educator who transitioned to patient partner upon retirement.

I strive to foster care and caring in our healthcare system through my volunteer activities, but in the evenings knitting takes over!

Debbie Docherty, DSc
I am grateful for learning experiences as both a health care provider (Paediatric Social Worker) and a consumer of health care (living with Multiple Sclerosis).  I am now loving retirement, volunteering and chasing grandchildren.

Partnering with Patients: Is there really any other way?

An exploration of patient partnership in healthcare, comparing past and present trends with a view to future opportunities. Debbie and Anne will share their personal journeys from healthcare providers to patient partners in education, clinical practice, and research. Our positive experiences of partnership instill hope that healthcare will continue to evolve, grounded by mutual respect, shared expertise, and compassionate relationships with patients.
