Kings College Hospitals Foundation Trust are training doctors of the future to support people to live well with long-term conditions and they would love patients and carers to input their thoughts.
What are they doing?
Kings College London is currently changing to a new way of teaching medical students. As part of this the Long Term Conditions module aims to give them the skills and confidence they need to support people to live well with long-term conditions.
How you can help?
Kings College London are very keen that they involve patients and carers in the discussion around how they do this. They have arranged a meeting on July 6 to have round-table discussions about how they ensure that young doctors leave the module with the skills they need to support people with long-term conditions
As a member of the group you’ll really have a chance to influence how Kings College London teach doctors of the future.
This is a very new idea and the team are still learning. Taking part at this stage gives you a chance to have a real impact for the better, shaping medical students’ learning.
Kings College London are looking for:
- individuals who have had direct experience of seeing doctors for help with a long-term condition (such as diabetes, arthritis, COPD – any condition that is being ‘managed’ rather than ‘cured’)
- carers or relatives of someone with such a condition
