Opportunity Purpose
Researchers at UBC would like to better understand the long-term costs of c-sections and vaginal deliveries to the health care system. We would like to learn from our patient partners about their experiences giving birth, their post-partum period, and if/how mode of delivery has affected subsequent pregnancies or any aspect of their physical and mental wellbeing.

Details
Our patient partners are advisors on the project, and help us refine our research question and analysis. Please note that we are currently recruiting partners from the health authorities listed below: Interior and Northern.

Eligibility
Age: 19 Years – 45 Years Old
Accepting Healthy Volunteers: No

Patient and family partners should not be a check box on research proposals! They need to be involved right from the start. I know patient and family partners are doing their part by providing their knowledge to researchers from their lived experience.  It’s a win-win for us to work together through PVN to make sure our input drives improvements.
