Medical students and other future health care professionals need to be more sensitive to the patient journey, care networks, and professions outside the hospital. In this project, parents of children with disabilities are introduced as educational partners. These parents form a rich learning resource due to their knowledge and experience. Parents get educational training and are collected in a ‘parent database’ so they can participate in multiple modules and courses. This innovation is characterised by collaboration and inter-disciplinarity. It creates understanding of the patient journey, knowledge of care networks, awareness of a career outside the hospital, and empathy in communication.
