New Patient Advocacy Training Course

New Patient Advocacy Training Course

The Patient Advocate Training Course provides practical and educational assistance to people wishing to enhance their skills in patient advocacy.

A patient advocate is someone who speaks for, acts on behalf of or otherwise assists a person seeking access to, or receiving, health services, with the specific objective of assisting that person to achieve the optimal health outcome that is available to them.

The training course provides students with a practical platform for advocating on behalf of a patient, it encourages students to develop five personal core competencies that are necessary for safe and effective advocacy, and it provides a practical framework to assist students in achieving the best health outcome for their patient.

The course is flexibly delivered and comprises eight online Modules with Assessment Exercises, a weekend In-Person Seminar in Melbourne (further Seminars may be offered in other States if there are sufficient enrolments), and a Final Assessment. Duration: Approx 12 weeks.

Enrolments are now open for 2014 Courses. For more information and to request a Course Outline visit www.patientadvocateinstitute.com.au.
