For 25 years, “Photovoice” has involved patients, youth, families and communities in exploring personal and public health and advocating for change. Photovoice is a participatory approach to photography, discussion, writing, and outreach for patients and community members. Patient photographs can illuminate factors that influence access to healthcare and quality of care, and thereby contribute to decision-making in respectful ways. Photovoice helps unite service providers, payors, and patients to address health and healthcare as shared endeavors. Photovoice is an innovative approach of proven value to organizations, patients, providers, policymakers, researchers, and communities.
Upon course completion, participants will receive a Training Certificate and have the knowledge, skills and tools to implement their Photovoice Plan. The interactive online format provides hands-on experience in adapting photovoice to research, programming, evaluation, and clinical care.
