Opportunity Purpose
Every month, there are approximately 3,600 births across British Columbia. There is currently no streamlined mechanism for patient education and monitoring during the postpartum period. Through interviews and focus groups, we plan to work with mothers and health professionals to co-develop a patient-centred mobile application to facilitate education and self-monitoring.

What’s Involved
We are looking for a patient partner who underwent Cesarean delivery within the past year to guide us throughout the research study to ensure that the project would be relevant to patients. We are looking for input particularly in terms of study design, App content, engagement and recruitment strategies, and knowledge dissemination.

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.
