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?

Seeking the patient perspective doesn’t have to be complicated; it simply entails a commitment to ask and listen. Patient advisors not only bring a valuable perspective but also share original ideas and unique skills. Including the patient and family perspective changes the conversation and aligns the team’s focus towards common goals.
