Patients and Surgical Education: Rethinking Learning, Practice and Patient Engagement
Patient involvement offers many opportunities for surgical education. This chapter presents ideas and examples to stimulate new ways of designing educational experiences. Patient involvement in medical education is presented as more than storytelling; it is how patients can be active teachers, curriculum developers and assessors. Involving patients may change surgical education and even surgical practice. In particular, patient involvement may shift (1) where the lesson starts and ends, (2) who decides what ‘good’ looks like, (3) what skills need to be learnt, (4) the role of the patient and (5) how to provide a good surgical service.
