Description: Of all the CanMEDS roles, Health Advocate is perhaps the most contentious. Educators, scholars and practitioners have debated questions around health advocacy. This conversation invites questions such as: What is health advocacy? Should health advocacy be a mandatory component of professionals’ work?

Participants will be able to:

    1: Consider current debates in health advocacy

    2: Develop working definitions of health advocacy

    3: Discuss how health advocacy is learned
