Member, Using genomics to improve drug treatments for people with depression – Genome BC

Posted • Last updated


Open to Patient Partners in British Columbia

Last updated

Genome BC is looking for two patient partners to participate as members of an oversight committee for a research project that is exploring how genetic testing can help guide treatment decisions for people living with depression in British Columbia.

The main role of the Research Oversight Committee (ROC) is to provide an independent view on the progress of the project, ensure that the project is on track to achieving its goals, and offer insight and advice to the project team. As a patient partner, your insights would offer invaluable advice, ideas and solutions about patient care and preferences based on your lived experiences. Patient partners are not expected to have health or research expertise to participate.

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
