The Ministry of Health's Patient Care Quality Review Board (PCQRB) is responsible for reviewing patient care complaints that have already been investigated and responded to by the health authorities' Patient Care Quality Offices. We at the PCQRB recognize the sensitivity of the cases brought to us by patients or their families whose concerns were not resolved by a health authority investigation, and we want to ensure that our review process meets the needs of everyone who requests our services. For this reason, we are looking to distribute a complainant experience survey to people who have been through our review process so that we can learn what worked for them and where we can improve. The results of the survey will guide changes to how we communicate with our complainants, what kind of information we offer on our website, and how we advocate for potential quality improvements  to the health authorities and the Ministry of Health. As a first step, we are looking to work with patient partners who have accessed the PCQRB program to finalize a draft of this survey. We know that patient partners who have begun or completed a PCQRB review are in the best position to help us ask the right questions. The outcome of our discussions with patient partners will inform this client satisfaction survey to be more widely distributed to former clients. No personal information will be permanently collected or released. Patient partners will receive a draft version of our proposed survey prior to meeting so that they can offer their thoughts and suggestions during the discussion.
