Our First Annual Report Is Here: Check It Out!

Posted • Last updated

2016 was a big year for PVN: we grew our membership significantly; engaged 428 patient partners in over 200 engagement opportunities; rebranded with a fresh, new look; and created new online resources to connect with members and the public at large.

We launched our 2016 Annual Report at the Quality Forum earlier this month, and now you can read the online version here. We also have printed copies available; connect with the Engagement Leader in your region if you would like one.

We invite you to learn more about PVN through the report and to contact us with your suggestions for the network moving forward. It’s great to have an account of all the amazing results that PVN members have accomplished, and we’re looking forward to the future!

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
