Because your voice matters.

Transforming Maternal Care



Commitment: One-time

Connection method: Virtual

Open to Fraser – Vancouver Coastal, Patient partners across BC


The Fraser Health Maternal, Infant, Child, Youth (MICY) program is interested in learning more about the patient experience by listening to how patients interact with the health system. Meet with a team member to share your experience receiving maternity care. During this conversation the team member may ask you to talk about the interactions, timelines, feelings, concerns, and supports you experienced. Based on this conversation, the MICY program hopes to identify the impacts and strengths of the current system as well as areas to improve.

Have a conversation with a team member to share your experience (you will not have to answer any questions that make you feel uncomfortable). Everything you say will be confidential. This conversation will happen virtually or in-person, at a time when you are available.

The Fraser Health Maternal Infant Child and Youth (MICY) program provides speciality services for women, babies, children, and teenagers in many communities. The services are divided into three distinct areas:
• Perinatal: care for pregnant women
• Pediatric: care for children and teenagers
• Neonatal: care for newborn babies

The MICY program is committed to improving the quality and accessibility of services. The program is therefore seeking all perspectives, including the patient experience, to help them understand the priorities and needs of the people they serve.

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
