Copyright Photovoice Professional Development (CE) Online Course  (Class limit: 15-people)

    'Talking with Pictures’: Photovoice  ** New Course Dates:  (June 18th - June 27th, 2019)

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, youth, families and communities in exploring personal and public health. Photovoice is a participatory approach to photography, discussion, writing and outreach for patients and community members to investigate their experiences and collaborate for change. Patient photographs can illuminate factors that influence access to healthcare and quality of care, and contribute to decision-making in respectful ways. Photovoice helps to unite service providers, payers, and patients to address health and healthcare as shared endeavors. Photovoice is an innovative approach of value to organizations, patients, providers, policymakers, researchers, and communities.

 Upon course completion, participants will receive a Training Certificate and have the knowledge, skills and tools to implement their Photovoice Plan. The interactive online format provides hands-on experience with adapting Photovoice to clinical care, programming, evaluation, and research.
