We are looking for at least 5 patient partners to provide a review and feedback on a new patient handout that will be given to patients upon discharge at NRGH, RJH and VGH. The goal is to ensure the information provided in the handout is clear and “patient friendly”. There is an opportunity to make some minor updates to this handout.

There will also be opportunities to participate in a review of this form after it has been in use for 3-6 months.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
