Open to Interior Region, Indigenous Patient partners in the Interior Health region
In the fall, Accreditation Canada will be conducting an on-site survey of Interior Health to assess our services against national standards. This focus group provides the opportunity for an Accreditation Canada surveyor to gain patient and family perspective about how Interior Health works with patients and families to plan, improve and provide care.
Open to: Indigenous Patient partners in the Interior Health region

Level of EngagementThis opportunity is at the level of consult on the spectrum of engagement. The promise to you is that the health care partner will listen to and acknowledge your ideas and concerns, and provide feedback on how your input affected the decision.
