Join us in making the Rae Fawcett Breast Health Clinic the best it can be! We would like to interview anyone who has been through the new Royal Inland Hospital breast health clinic to learn how we can best meet patient and family needs going forward.

Open to: Patient partners who have accessed the Rae Fawcett Breast Health Clinic at Royal Inland Hospital

Lead Organization or Department

Royal Inland Hospital, Administration Department


We have had the Rae Fawcett Breast Health Clinic open for 14 months and are beginning an evaluation by reviewing patient experiences: what is working well and any areas we can improve. Interior Health would like to hear from patients or family members who have been through the clinic. Experiences can be shared in a private, face-to-face or telephone interview which may take up to 30 minutes.

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.


  • Diverse perspectives are an asset (age, culture, geographic location).
  • Participants must have been through the Rae Fawcett breast health clinic as a patient or family member.


Vacancies: 2-3 Commitment: 30 minute interview in-person at Royal Inland Hospital or over the phone. Interview times are flexible and would ideally take place within the next 4-6 weeks.


Parking expenses will be covered for those coming to Royal Inland Hospital.


Patient perspectives were included in the start-up planning of the Rae Fawcett clinic patient access and flow. We would like to ensure the patient experience is as stress-free and comfortable as possible. Therefore, we are inviting 2-3 patients to share their experiences with us to highlight what is working well and what could be done better. More information about the opening of the clinic can be found here.

PVN has really helped us engage with patient partners to improve health services at Northern Health.  It is more and more becoming the norm to include patients in the design, delivery and evaluation of health services.  PVN education and supports, involving patient partners, have enabled us to develop the capacity to include the patient voice to make care better and achieve better health outcomes.
