Opportunity Purpose
The BC SUPPORT Unit Fraser Centre invites patients, caregivers, or service users (i.e. patient partners) that are partnering in patient-oriented research, to take an online survey to share your experiences of being a patient partner during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your responses will be used in aggregate data to be presented during Fraser Health Research Week and will inform planning of future patient engagement in research during a pandemic.

What’s Involved
The online survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete. Your personal information collected by the Fraser Centre is subject to protections under the BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). To access the survey click here.

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
