Pain Medication Dosing and Genetics Research Study

Posted • Last updated


Open to Patient partners from Royal Columbian Hospital, Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, New Westminster, BC

Opportunity Purpose
Our study explores genetic variation in metabolism of pain medication following surgery. We would like to consult patient partners who have experience with surgery and post-operative pain medication. We seek input on patient contact from the point of consent through surgery and post-operative follow-up questionnaire.

What’s Involved
We would like to involve the patient partner in helping to plan to study flow, from initial patient contact, through their surgery, and the follow-up questionnaire. We would ask the partner to attend team Zoom meetings approximately once per month to help plan the study.

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!
