Predicting Problems after Bowel Surgery



Open to Provincial Region


Opportunity Purpose
We would like to involve patients to create a tool to predict when medical problems may happen after bowel surgery (colectomy), to help guide patient education and self-monitoring.

What’s Involved
We would like to hear about how the tool would be most helpful to patients: what information would patients want, how to present the information?

Recently, a PVN Patient Advisor asked healthcare partners, “What are we learning from patients, families, and others thus far during this pandemic?”. This is an excellent question and one to ask ourselves daily.
