Patient Advocate Certification Review Course
Welcome to the Patient Advocate Certification Review Course. The program was developed to provide those preparing for a career in patient advocacy and those sitting for the Board Certified Patient Advocate Certification Exam.
The course was developed by Anne Llewellyn, a nurse advocate, Board-Certified Patient Advocate, and national leader in patient advocacy. Anne was one of the founding members of the Patient Advocate Certification Board and part of the original committee to launch the first exam.
This course is designed to explain the body of knowledge that the Patient Advocate Certification Board has developed to guide patient advocacy practice. The course provides examples to illustrate the theory and show how it is used in day-to-day practice.
Advocacy is a broad practice with advocates working in various areas. The exam tests the fundamentals of the practice that all advocates are expected to uphold. We hope you find the course useful in preparing for the Patient Advocate Certification Exam and for practicing as a patient advocate. This course can be part of an introduction to patient advocacy practice for people who are new to advocacy. It can also serve as a refresher to help more seasoned advocates on the basics as they grow in the practice.
