Eating and Drinking at Risk Patient Family Partner


Deadline: Apply by

Open to Provincial Region

Opportunity Purpose
We are seeking a Patient Family Partner to help inform our research project from their unique perspective. As Speech Language Pathologists and Registered Dietitians, we know conversations around Eating and Drinking at Risk (EDAR) are of critical importance. Our research intends to explore current practices of EDAR conversations at Providence Health Care. The perspective of a Patient Family Partner would be valuable in informing future care.

What’s Involved
We hope to hear from first-hand experience conversations a Patient Family Partner has been involved with a conversation around EDAR. We intend to have a 1-hour virtual conversation with a Patient and Family Partner to hear their experiences with EDAR, and any further recommendations they have about how to best facilitate these conversations in the future.

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.
