Why Patient Advocacy is Imperative: Implications for research, healthcare, and ourselves

Presentation Date: Thursday, September 6th 2018

Maxime Lê is graduate in health sciences from the University of Ottawa that has worn many hats for many roles. Chief among them is being a patient advisor for The Ottawa Hospital. Having frequently been a patient and having a passion for health and healthcare, he decided to get involved at The Ottawa Hospital to help improve care, research and advocate for patients.
Maxime, while sharing his hands-on experience and insights, will try to answer the questions
that healthcare providers, researchers, or prospective patient advisors may have, such as:
”What does it mean to be a patient advisor?”, ”Why is it important?”, and ”What impact does it have?”.

The webinar will be followed by an interactive question and answer session.
