The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council is thrilled to share PVN’s 2020/21 Annual Report and celebrate the hard work of the network’s patient and health care partners through a very challenging year.

Last year we welcomed 139 new patient partners, which brought our total membership to more than 1,250, and supported 215 new engagement opportunities.

The report shares how we navigated and persevered through the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, and features seven stories about partnerships which demonstrate some of the details, actions and impacts of meaningful patient engagement:

We hope you enjoy the report, and we thank all of our patient and health care partners for their continued support and contributions!

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.
