The Delirium working group is creating a special indicator to be a visual display to all KGH health care staff that their patient is a possible high risk of getting hospital acquired delirium. This indicator will make it easer for staff to take precautions to hopefully eliminate the patients risk of acquiring delirium by following specific standards. We are hoping to have a patient and / or family member engage in this work to allow us to focus on what is important to patients and families in relation to delirium.

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
