BC Knowledge Centre Family Caregiver Advisory Committee



Commitment: Long-term

Connection method: Virtual

Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across BC


OBJECTIVE: The BC Children’s Knowledge Centre is inviting family caregivers to partner in the creation and exchange of knowledge, with the goal of improving health outcomes for all children and youth in BC.
The guiding principles for selection of committee members include diverse representation culturally and geographically, and an acknowledgement that knowledge is multi-faceted. We want to hear and address family needs and priorities, and work together to create solutions.

The members will virtually meet monthly, with an attempt to meet annually in person (with paid expenses), and the occasional review of projects via email. There will be a $25/hr payment for recognition of time, skillset and contribution.

Recently, a PVN Patient Advisor asked healthcare partners, “What are we learning from patients, families, and others thus far during this pandemic?”. This is an excellent question and one to ask ourselves daily.
