Because your voice matters.

Engagement Opportunities

Engagement opportunities seek patient partners’ involvement to improve BC’s health care system. Health care partners host the opportunities. Local opportunities involve improving care in your community, while provincial opportunities might affect patients across British Columbia.

Examples include:

  • Improving access to health data
  • Reducing surgical wait times
  • Joining local projects aimed at improving patients’ care experiences

If you are a health care partner seeking patient partners, please use our engagement request form (ERF) and see our sample ERF.

If you are a patient partner seeking engagement opportunities to participate in, please sign up for PVN or RSVP. See the sample RSVP.

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.
