Interior Health would like to hear patient and family member perspectives regarding potential improvements in the Ambulatory Clinic at Royal Inland Hospital. If you have experienced ambulatory or outpatient care at Royal Inland, this is a great opportunity to contribute to quality improvement discussions during a two-hour workshop.

Open to: Patient partners in the Interior region

Lead Organization or Department

Interior Health; Hospitals and Community Integrated Services


Interior Health wants to engage with patients and family members who have accessed the ambulatory clinic at Royal Inland Hospital for health care. This initiative is focused on quality improvement for the ambulatory clinic, taking into account the voices of both staff and patients alike. Ambulatory care provides acute care services to patients admitted for day procedures which do not require overnight stay.  This includes diagnosis, observation, consultation, treatment, and intervention services. This care can include advanced medical technology and procedures.

Level of Engagement

This 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.


If you have a strong interest in this work but have not yet completed a PVN orientation and volunteer agreement, are unsure if your experience is a good fit or feel another format of engagement would work better with your availability, please contact the engagement leader directly.


Vacancies: 1-2 Date, Time, Location: November 19 from 1300 - 1500 in Conference Room 1 of Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops Commitment: One time attendance


Reimbursement for parking will be provided


This is a process of continuous quality improvement at Royal Inland Hospital and involves physicians, management, nursing staff, allied health staff, quality improvement staff and patient partners. The process will be explained on the preparation call and there are no materials required.

The Patient Voices Network has connected me to a community with the same drive to bring person- and family-centred care to the forefront. I am grateful for all opportunities I have been a part of thanks to PVN, which positively impacts patients like my sister and their caregivers. No matter how small, all patient engagement will help shape the future of health care and that I can stand behind
