Ardouin, Kenny, McWilliams, Danielle, Bates, Amanda (2023) A Keynote Address: A Guide to Supporting Conference Speakers with Lived Experience of Cleft Lip and/or Palate. The Cleft Palate Craniofacial Journal, . ISSN 1055-6656. (doi:10.1177/10556656231211684) (KAR id:104098)

Abstract

Although the value of diversity within academia and society is increasingly recognised, the role of speakers with lived experience at cleft and craniofacial conferences remains inconsistent. This perspectives article shares reflection from three academics with lived experience of cleft discussing the value of including lived experience speakers routinely within conferences and outlining common challenges and barriers to the involvement of “experts-by-experience”. Key considerations and recommendations are offered to help conference organisers and delegates to make the most of the lived experience perspective, while ensuring the conference experience is positive for lived experience speakers.
