Because your voice matters.

Health Care Partner Resources

We’ve created a number of resources, tools and supports to help you engage patient partners 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

All resources are created with input from patient and/or health care partners.

We encourage you to take a look at the Health Quality BC website. “What Matters to You” and other resources are there to support improving the quality of health care in BC.

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
