What Do You Need to Learn? What Do You Wish You Knew About the Practice of Advocacy?
This Health and Patient Advocate Programs website has been providing information about learning opportunities for advocates and care managers for more than five years. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, there will always been a need for further education! With that premise, we kick off this blog on just that topic – learning opportunities for health and patient advocates and those who wish to become one. We have an excellent lineup of blogging talent in front of us. These are individuals, all mentors in their advocacy fields, who have already proven their leadership and teaching abilities, and who are willing to share that information with you. We hope it will become a two way street! We hope you will post your questions, concerns, education needs, and stories, too. Your participation will make a richer experience for us all. Welcome!
