We believe working together leads to better health care services and we’re committed to sharing regular updates about our plans and the progress of our partners towards improving health care in BC. We do this through:

Strategic Plan: Our strategic plan sets out our goals and priorities, and is created through consultation with our partners in communities and organizations across British Columbia.

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.


2020/2021 PVN Annual Report

The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council is pleased to share its 2020/21 PVN Annual Report! Without question, 2020 was a novel year with many challenges for the health care system and British Columbians to cope with and overcome. We’re so proud of the perseverance and commitment to patient engagement demonstrated by PVN patient and health care partners.

Despite the pandemic, last year our network grew to 1,251 patient partners and we supported 215 new engagement opportunities across the province. We invite you to explore this report to learn more about some of those engagements, as well as new resources, learning opportunities and collaborations launched last year.

We hope you enjoy this summary of our activities and impact, and we thank all the patient and health care partners for their ongoing support and contributions!

PVN has really helped us engage with patient partners to improve health services at Northern Health.  It is more and more becoming the norm to include patients in the design, delivery and evaluation of health services.  PVN education and supports, involving patient partners, have enabled us to develop the capacity to include the patient voice to make care better and achieve better health outcomes.
