In late 2020, Interior Health began the task of re-building its public website – which receives over six million page views per year – from the ground up. To do this work, the project team reached out to the Patient Voices Network to create meaningful opportunities for patient partners to be involved in the work.
We connect health care and patient partners who are seeking to engage patient voices in their efforts to improve quality of care. Along the way, we support our members throughout their engagement opportunities, build their skills and capture the impact of their work.
The Patient Voices Network has provided Rylee and me the ability to channel our experience into positive change for others. Our voice in decision making, planning and partnerships for mental health care is having a profound impact on our healing process.

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
