Socially Responsible Fair Health Symposium
Reducing the health gap in our society: it’s a task for all of us. But how do we do this? Using the available experience is key. This symposium brings together all kinds of experiential knowledge and expertise by experience.
This year the symposium took place at the Lindenberg in Nijmegen on 13 June 2023 (12:00 - 18:00). The program was varied, with a keynote by Tim 'S Jongers followed by parallel sessions of your own choosing. Check out the timetable of the program.

How does collaboration between experts by experience and other professionals in a community mental health team work? How do professionals deal with this new kind of knowledge: experiential knowledge. Do they embrace and utilize it? What works and what doesn't? Learn from the findings of this doctoral research. This session will be in English.
To better utilize experiential knowledge, we’re developing a methodology (skills passport) that links the competences of experts by experience to organizational goals. This workshop looks at how to apply this methodology. Be sure to tap into your own experiences during the discussion. This session will be simultaneously interpreted into English.
How do you make an organization like HAN more inclusive? What makes students and staff feel at home at HAN, even when they need support? And how can you contribute to inclusiveness? Various perspectives (with experiential knowledge) will be discussed. Also, explore what you yourself can do within your own team or degree program. This session will be in English.
Innovation in healthcare. That often seems to be the solution to the increasing demand for healthcare. But do innovations contribute to reducing health disparities? This session focuses on experiential knowledge of Parkinson’s disease. How to innovate for and by people with this condition? This session will be simultaneously interpreted into English.
It was possible to take an hour to gain some experience for yourself. A special route through the building led you past all kinds of experiential knowledge. You could listen to stories. Look at photos. Talk to experts by experience or researchers. Play a game. Or try to escape from an escape room.
