Expert Patient Service User Mentor

The EPPCIC has a really interesting project on the go at the moment; using the experience of expert patients to introduce health & social care students early on in their careers to the reality of living with and managing long-term conditions.

Increasing awareness of the reality of these conditions is important, and when better to install this than during the first years of their professional lives?! Having the information delivered in a personal way through mentors should make the learning process two-way and interactive.

What a great model - it can applied to lots of awareness schemes I think!
