Background

This is an optimization exercise for a new software system in Home Support. We have identified an opportunity to learn from the North Okanagan sites already live with the software and intend to learn and standardize our system as much as possible using Lean methodology prior to spreading to the rest of IH in 2020. Approximately 12 participants are expected (not including PVN reps). The primary risk may be excess technical jargon and acronyms; we will do our utmost to explain these and will ask the PVN rep kindly speak up if we do not. There are no Terms of Reference, although an agenda will provided and I would be happy to personally connect with participant(s) prior to the session.

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
