We’ve created a number of resources, tools and supports to help you engage patients in a meaningful way. Depending on what you’re looking for, this section provides supports for:

  • Assessing readiness: materials that help your team get ready to engage patients
  • Skill building: resources that build your skills, confidence and comfort in engaging patient partners
  • Preparation: recruitment, preparation and selection strategy resources for engaging patients well
  • Evaluation: providing support and resources to assess the impact of your engagement efforts and share them with others

PVN helped empower me to make meaningful contributions to Primary Care (PC) locally and provincially.  It also facilitated creation of PC Patient Voices which is focused on PC and provides education support and building on shared experiences.
