In the health and social care world, the effectiveness of teaching improves when students learn from experts by experience. The benefits of collaborating with people who have lived experience in the design, delivery and evaluation of teaching programmes at pre-qualification and in-service have been documented. However, such practice is not embedded throughout all stages of learning and across all agencies in the East Midlands. The following paragraphs set out the case for such involvement, point to resources, and offer advice to assist both those arranging training and those who share their lived experience with learners. This briefing paper was first drafted by a group called together by the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network as part of its work on Patient Leadership. As readers provide feedback, further insights will be used to update the paper. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
