The Health Mentors Program is an educational initiative at UBC, coordinated by the Patient & Community Partnership for Education in the Office of UBC Health. This is a unique educational program in which teams of students from different health disciplines and human service programs learn together from and with adult patients/clients with a chronic condition or disability, or health mentors can be caregivers who provide long-term care to a loved one with a chronic condition/disability.

Over the 9-month program, the student teams will visit their mentor seven times; each visit will focus on specific learning goals. The program runs from September 2022 to May 2023, and includes 50 health mentors and 200 students from eleven different health and human service programs.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
