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.

Royal Inland Hospital, Administration Department

Aim

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.

Eligibility

  • 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.

Logistics

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.

Reimbursement

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

Background

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.

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.
