Patient Advisory Council Member with Preterm Birth Experience Needed



Open to Provincial Region, online


Opportunity Purpose
We are currently seeking two members for our patient advisory council (PAC). We are looking to involve patients who have had personal experiences of late-preterm deliveries (34-36 weeks gestation) as birthers or co-parents to help bring personal perspective to the development of the tool. We hope the PAC will help us to refine our research tools and language to meet the needs of the patient-provider decision making dynamic.

The Patient Advisory Council will be involved in 3-4 (2h) meetings and 6h of interviewer training to help the team ensure the tools are relevant and clearly understandable. The PAC will also work to train the interviewers to be sensitive to navigating survey questions with a diversity of patients who have had late preterm deliveries.

Age: 18 Years – 50 Years Old

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.
