The Clinical Workforce Optimization and Design team at Providence Health Care is working on developing a new model of care for the inpatient cardiac units at the new St Paul’s Hospital. We are aiming to engage patient partners early in the process so we can have their input in the design of a report, that will provide recommendations to be implemented by Operations. This partnership will involve a series of online meetings (likely 2 or 3), reviewing drafts and providing feedback.

Seeking the patient perspective doesn’t have to be complicated; it simply entails a commitment to ask and listen. Patient advisors not only bring a valuable perspective but also share original ideas and unique skills. Including the patient and family perspective changes the conversation and aligns the team’s focus towards common goals.
