We are establishing a working group to review the need for infusions in primary care and would like the patient voice and perspective as we work through the decision of providing infusions within the primary care settings (IH primary care clinics and urgent and primary care centers). We have several questions we are trying to determine and the main question is if we should do infusions in primary care and if we do what does this look like. The meetings would take place the second Monday of the month 1100-1200. Our first meeting will be reviewing clinical ethic decision making tool to understand the intended outcome of the working group, decision making in the group, communication strategy, and determining the core question and issue needing to be addressed. We anticipate this working group to be at least six months.

ToR still required to be developed, which would be the value of having the patient partner join at the first meeting.

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.
