10 Patient Learning Journey – Key Learning Points: Permission to tell their story in a safe, confidential environment Identify common themes Acknowledging expertise Facilitated by patients and carers – the group own the workshops Time, space and respect are core to success Workshop can be part of the grieving process This is not about sympathy (the usual response when illness is talked about). It is about moving on and turning a negative experience into a positive learning opportunity for both patient/carer and students Move towards autonomy and empowerment Crucial step toward working in partnership

12 Learning so far Making a difference …we could be actually talking to our future doctors and nurses…we go out and come across all these walls and we thought if we could actually voice our opinions and our thoughts right at the beginning hopefully we should see a change (Learning journeys participant)

13 Learning so far Change I had such a bad experience with my consultants and my wife it traumatised her for the rest of her life…and I don’t want to bang the table but show people there is a different way (Learning journey participant)

14 Learning so far Networks and support I thought it was good to hear other people’s stories and you hear others and you think I am not the only one. You do get isolated and getting involved in groups it does open you up there are others in the same type of boats as you (Learning journey participant)
