Because your voice matters.

Gorge Urgent and Primary Care, assessment of a patient passport document that would serve patients who suffer from Chronic Disease with no Family Dr.



Commitment: Short-term

Connection method: Hybrid

Open to Vancouver Island Region


This document needs to contain enough patient information to be user friendly and serve as a clear reminder of what the next steps are to book in for chronic disease management appointments if you do not have a primary care provider. We have quite a spectrum of how much information we can provide but we don’t want patients to be overwhelmed or they will not use the document. Patient feedback is imperative to our success in this health care collaborative venture

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
