Emergency Care BC Provincial Patient Discharge Sheets



Commitment: Long-term

Connection method: Virtual

Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across BC


Patient Discharge Sheets are hosted by Emergency Care BC (ECBC) on our website and are meant to be useful tools for patients to be provided with upon discharge from an Emergency Department, to help patients care for themselves or family members at home and know when to seek additional care.

As the audience for these sheets are patients, ECBC wishes to work with patient partners to provide feedback on these sheets as they are updated or created throughout the year. This is a critical role to ensure the success of these resources by helping ECBC improve them. Beyond helping improve these resources, there will also be opportunities to participate or even help facilitate (if desired) in patient workshops throughout the summer with additional patient partners.

We are ideally looking for two patient partners to work together throughout the year. The exact amount of participation time is negotiable but we believe it will average out to about 4 hours a month.

Recognition for time will be provided according to organizational policies.

Patient and family partners should not be a check box on research proposals! They need to be involved right from the start. I know patient and family partners are doing their part by providing their knowledge to researchers from their lived experience.  It’s a win-win for us to work together through PVN to make sure our input drives improvements.
