Would you like to take part in the development of a new online course on Sexually Transmitted Bloodborne Infections – Barriers to Testing? We’re recruiting patients from across Canada to participate in a focus group on this topic. 

The goal of this project is to develop a national online course that supports and improves physicians and nurses’ ability to screen for sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections by identifying barriers to testing and outlining strategies that can be used to overcome those barriers.

Focus group details:
• Capacity: 5 participants
• Duration: 60 minutes
• Date/time: May 2021 (dates will be selected based on majority of group availability).
• Location: Remote, online video-conference with phone line available.
• Sessions will be recorded. All responses will be kept confidential.

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.
