The School of Nursing and Allied Health at Liverpool John Moores University are delighted to be sponsoring two new award categories: Patient Experience Advocate of Tomorrow and Patient Experience Transformer of Tomorrow. The awards recognise that students of Health and Social Care, Nursing, Medical and Allied Health Professional education will be in a unique position to champion and enhance patient, service user and carer experience. Patient and service user experience are central to our work. Real-world understanding from a range of disciplines means that we are able to recognise the needs of individuals, families and their communities, and the organisations providing services for them. Working closely with NHS Trusts and our other partners, we use this insight to shape and deliver impactful projects that integrate education and research, promote innovative service delivery, professional development and improved patient care.  This engagement directly informs all of our research and scholarship activities, providing vital learning for our students and real benefits to our community.
