Learn about an innovative way to engage patients and the public in health!

An online Professional Development Course: (5 Sessions, 2 hours each

For 25 years, “Photovoice” has involved patients/clients, service providers, youth, families and communities in exploring personal and public health. Photovoice generates powerful data (photos, captions) that help unite patients/clients, service providers, and communities to address health and healthcare as shared endeavors. Photovoice is a participatory approach to photography, discussion, writing and outreach for patients/clients to investigate their experiences, heal, and collaborate with clinicians and others for change. Patient/client photographs can illuminate factors that influence access to healthcare and quality of care, and can contribute to decision-making in respectful ways. Photovoice is an innovative approach of value to clinicians and patients/clients, as well as policymakers, researchers, and communities. This non-credit, online professional development course provides hands-on experience with the use of Photovoice with patients/clients with chronic health conditions and disabilities affecting cognition and mental health, and the application of the findings to improve clinical care and programming, evaluate treatment, and conduct research.

Upon completion, clinicians will have the knowledge, skills and tools to implement their Photovoice Plan with patients/clients with chronic health conditions and disabilities affecting cognition and mental health. The interactive online format provides opportunities for experiential learning that will help clinicians to guide and support their patients/clients through the steps of the Photovoice method.
