We’re seeking patient partners to join BC Children’s Hospital’s steering committee and the BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre Medication Reconciliation Steering Committee. Read on for more information!

WHO – One patient partner for BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre and one family partner for BC Children’s Hospital

WHEN – Starting September 25, for a two-year term on a quarterly basis. Meetings will be approximately one hour.

WHERE – At both hospitals (either in person or virtually via teleconference)

WHY – Medication reconciliation (Med Rec) is a structured process where health care professionals partner with patients to ensure accurate and complete medication information is consistently communicated through all care transition points (hospital admission, transfer and discharge home). At hospital discharge, the process allows for clear communication to patients and their care providers regarding their current medication and any medication changes that occurred while in hospital relative to the medications prior to admission.

EXPECTATION – Attend meetings, provide insight, and help guide the working group work for informing change and developing policy & procedures.

HONORARIUM – An honorarium (amount to be determined) will be provided.

If this is something you may be interested in attending, we would appreciate you letting us know why you are interested in participating, as well as brief description of your lived experience at BC Children’s and/or BC Women’s Hospital.

Please email PatientExperience@cw.bc.ca and we will be in touch regarding next steps.

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
