This booklet is one chapter from the i-Base advocacy manual which is available here.
The format is very simple. It is written by and for people who do not have a formal scientific background or medical training.
Even if you are not very academic, and this training is difficult, you can still be a very effective advocate and activist. This training will help you understand the background to treatment issues.
The training material has been written in a way that makes it easier for you to then explain the information again to other people who do not have a medical background.
As community advocates and trainers, it is important to understand and explain things that people may not have a great interested in at first, and explain them in a way that makes the new information relevant to them getting better care.
Most people don’t want to know about science - they just want to get on with their lives.
