Posted • Last updated

In recent years, BC has faced emerging challenges for health, such as spread of COVID-19 and a toxic illicit drug supply, while continuing to manage ongoing, systemic pressures such as an aging demographic and timely access to care. In this context, UBC Health (in the Office of the Vice-President, Health at UBC) seeks your perspective on priorities for improving health and wellness in BC. A Health Systems Advisory Committee, chaired by UBC Health, is committed to facilitating collaborative discussions and efforts, building on perspectives you and others share.

This link connects you to a portal where you can quickly add your ideas and rank the thoughts collected there, all anonymously. Access will be open from Jan. 10 to Jan. 23. The process only takes two minutes, but you can spend as much time as you like adding ideas and ranking the ideas generated by others.

You can return to this link as many times as you like to rank more ideas or share ideas from different perspectives you might hold.

If you would like to receive a summary of the findings from this process, click this link and provide your email address. This link is not tied at all to your survey responses, which will be anonymous.

If you would like more information about this perspective-gathering process, such as who is participating and how health is defined here, visit this link.

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.
