Patients Included Charter Clauses

As a result of patients and caregivers being at the forefront of our planning and the agenda, we have achieved ‘Patients Included status’ for this event. Visit the Patients Included website for more information, and follow the hashtag #PatientsIncluded to stay up to date on Twitter.

  1. Patients or caregivers with experience relevant to the conference’s central theme actively participate in the design and planning of the event, including the selection of themes, topics and speakers.

    We would like to gratefully acknowledge the Planning Committee members made up of lived experience advisors and staff for their contributions in bringing this Person-Centred Care event to life:

    Pat Giddings; Brian McKee; Mike McCormick; Kirk Kelly; Gwen Barton; Lesley MacInnis-Miller; Tamara Harth; Jonathan Foster; Dr. Simron Singh; Dr. Michael Walsh; Eli Kane; Michelle Rand; Victoria Hagens; Erin Redwood

  2. Patients or caregivers with experience of the issues addressed by the event participate in its delivery, and appear in its physical audience.

    Our line-up of exciting speakers including lived experience advisors sharing their thoughts on the meaning of Person-Centred Care as well as thought leaders in the area of Person-Centred Care. The day will also be chaired by the Chair of CCO’s Patient & Family Advisory Council Brian McKee.

  3. Travel and accommodation expenses for patients or carers participating in the advertised programme are paid in full, in advance. Scholarships are provided by the conference organisers to allow patients or carers affected by the relevant issues to attend as delegates.

    We are pleased to be able to support the participation of patient/family advisor participants as well as speakers through coordination and full payment for travel and accommodation. The event has not offered scholarships on the basis that all requestors have automatically had travel and expenses pre-paid, thereby superseding the need to offer scholarships. Please contact for more information on attending the conference as a Patient/Family Advisor.

  4. The disability requirements of participants are accommodated. All applicable sessions, breakouts, ancillary meetings, and other programme elements are open to patient delegates.

    The venue has been chosen with care to insure accessibility to all participants (please refer to the MaRs Accessibility Service Policy). CCO is an organization committed to ensuring accessible services and communications to individuals with disabilities. Should you require specific accommodation for any part of the upcoming event or any document in an alternate format, please indicate the details in your registration form or please contact CCO’s Public Affairs Department at 1-855-460-2647, TTY 416-217-1815, or at

  5. Access for virtual participants is facilitated, with free streaming video provided online wherever possible
  6. We are pleased to be able to provide a free live webcast of the full event, please return to this page for the link and instructions to join on September 28, 2016. A recording of the event will also be made available following the completion of the event.
The Patients Included conference charter provides conference organizers with a means of demonstrating that their events are committed to incorporating the experience of patients as experts in living with their condition while ensuring they are neither excluded nor exploited.
