Because your voice matters.

Sign-Up Form

Join PVN to use your expertise and experience as a patient, family or caregiver to improve health care in BC. As a patient partner, you can choose from a number of volunteer opportunities where you are paired with health care teams to help real change happen in facilities and through policies.

Once we receive your sign-up form, we will initiate our review process to ensure alignment with our shared purpose. Part of that process may include a phone call, prior to confirmation of moving forward with an orientation. For those of you who may be seeking answers to a specific care question, we encourage you to reach out to the BC Patient Care Quality Office.

Patient and family partners should not be a check box on research proposals! They need to be involved right from the start. I know patient and family partners are doing their part by providing their knowledge to researchers from their lived experience.  It’s a win-win for us to work together through PVN to make sure our input drives improvements.

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.
