Do you have an interest in looking at how we capture the impact of health care improvement projects? Would you like to join us in developing a standard approach to guide evaluation in our provincial initiatives to improve kidney care? If yes, this might be the opportunity for you!

BC Renal is seeking patients and family members to participate in the Evaluation Project Advisory Group. This group will advise and guide the development of a standard approach to conducting evaluation of projects led by BC Renal provincial committees. A standard evaluation approach across all new initiatives will make it easier to track progress and report successes and challenges.

Members of the Advisory Group will include patient partners, health professionals from provincial and regional health authorities, as well as staff from BC Renal. Members will work together by sharing their knowledge and experiences with projects designed to improve the quality of care for patients and families living with chronic kidney disease and how standard evaluation approaches support this effort.

Commitment: Meetings every three months; 60 minutes each via teleconference during typical work day hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) First meeting will be held in January; term membership for group members will be for one year.

Compensation: Expenses for travel and accommodation, if needed, will be reimbursed.

RSVP questions:

Please respond to the following questions to patientengagement@bcpra.ca or phone 604-875-7340:

1. Briefly describe your experience with kidney disease.

2. Why are you interested in being on this working group?

3. What skills and expertise would you bring to this working group?

The Patient Voices Network has connected me to a community with the same drive to bring person- and family-centred care to the forefront. I am grateful for all opportunities I have been a part of thanks to PVN, which positively impacts patients like my sister and their caregivers. No matter how small, all patient engagement will help shape the future of health care and that I can stand behind
