Have your say on quality of care in BC!

The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, which administers PVN, is renewing its strategic plan and wants to know how you think quality of care can be improved in our province.

There are two ways to participate and ensure that the Council’s strategic direction continues to reflect what’s important to British Columbians:

  1. Complete the Council’s Strategic Plan Survey
  2. Join a ThoughtExchange

What is the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council?

Using evidence-informed strategies, the Council advances person- and family-centred care, shifts culture and improves clinical practice to support high-quality care for every person in our province. The Council receives its mandate from the Minister of Health, and patient and public engagement is one of its five key roles and responsibilities.

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.
