The Patient Care Quality office needs your expertise to help redesign our promotional material. We want to ensure our posters and brochures are clear, accessible and, most of all, patient-friendly!

Aim

Our goal is to increase clarity and accessibility of the Patient Care Quality Program by redesigning existing brochures and posters. Having a patient partner share their perspective as part of the redesign will help to ensure a patient lens is included. The patient partner will be a member of the committee, along with representatives from each of the Health Authorities, giving their opinion and perspective on how we can better communicate and ultimately increase patients’ or their representatives’ feedback of how they were treated when they needed to access the health care system.

Level of Engagement

This opportunity is at the level of collaborate on the spectrum of engagement. The promise to you is that the health care partner will work together with you to formulate solutions and incorporate your advice and recommendations into the decisions to the maximum extent possible.

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!
