From Our Community

Spiritual Health Practitioner and Patient- and Family-Centred Care Lead — Kelowna General Hospital

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.
