Annual Report: Each year our annual report highlights stories of partnership impacts as well as the work we undertook to grow the network and advance the patient voice.


2021/2022 PVN Annual Report

The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council is thrilled and excited to share the Patient Voices Network’s work through the 2021-2022 Annual Report!

As we navigated the second year of patient engagement through a pandemic, we were pleased to welcome 172 new patient partners to the network.  We supported 137 different health care teams, and helped to connect 383 patient partners with over 150 new engagement opportunities!

We hope you enjoy this year’s annual report, which includes stories from across the province that highlight the positive impact of patient partner involvement in BC’s health care system.

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.
