Help Put Patients at the Heart of Interior Health Care!

Posted

You may have noticed a number of new opportunities in the Interior region on our Engagement Opportunities page. We have seven different opportunities across the Interior aimed at putting more focus on patient-and family-centred care.

Interior Health is putting patients at the centre of their health care decision making. The health authority needs your help to build a three-year strategic plan which reflects the needs of the people living in the region.

Seven engagement sessions will be taking place across the Interior in order to foster conversations at the local level. Join the discussion and make your voice heard – your input will be used to help develop the organization’s strategic plan.

Sign up to volunteer today and help improve health care in your area:

Penticton and the South Okanagan area

Enderby and the North Okanagan area

Williams Lake area

Kamloops area

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
