Can you explain what “patient/public representatives as faculty/planners” means in Criterion 24?

Criterion 24 encourages the accredited provider to utilize patients, their families, and other members of the public as planners and faculty members in accredited CME. Providers have broad latitude in how they define the roles of planners and faculty – as appropriate to their CME program and activities.  For example, a patient or public representative could serve on a planning committee to advise the provider, could be a speaker, or could be a participant in a case-based discussion during an accredited CME activity.
