Presently working in France at the FEHAP, a French employer’s federation defending the interests of health and social care organizations of the non-profit sector, Alice Casagrande has been coordinating since 2015 an initiative called “Partners in knowledge” aimed at promoting the active participation of patients, carers and social service users in the training of health and social care professionals. This initiative which has involved patients, carers and people with life-long social difficulties, as well as institutional partners and public administrations, succeeded in producing a consensus Statement in 2018, which was signed by the French Minister of Health Agnès Buzyn.
Alice Casagrande is also the president of the national committee for the prevention of abuse and promotion of quality of care for elderly citizens and people with disabilities. She published several books and many articles in the professional press related to abuse and quality or ethics of care, including What abuse teaches us (Dunod, 2012) and Management and ethics in the health and social care sector (Dunod 2016). She has been teaching managerial ethics at Paris Dauphine University for five years, and regularly gives conferences on this topic.
