Last updated

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 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?

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.
