Open to Patient Partners in Richmond

This initiative supports engagement between physicians (specialists who are part of VCH staff) and Health Authorities (HA).  The aim of the initiative is to improve the working environment and ultimately patient care. Each Health Authority CEO has committed through a Memorandum of Understanding to support greater engagement and collaboration with doctors. Funds have been distributed to facility-based physicians through local Physician Societies (created from Medical Staff Associations) for the purpose of improving physician involvement in addressing matters affecting patient care and their work environment.  The Specialists Services Committee has the responsibility of overseeing this initiative and distributing funding.

In Richmond the Physician’s Society has had the pleasure of working with a CEAN member over the past 2 and a half years. That CEAN member has stepped down now and the society is wanting to continue the tradition of having CEAN voice at the table.

The Richmond Hospital Physician Society Working would like to recruit a CEAN member from Richmond to participate in their meetings, and bring in the patient perspective. It would be beneficial if you have been a patient or family member of a patient of Richmond Hospital within the past 3 – 5 years

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
