The Impact of Illness on Work and Activities



Open to Provincial Region


Patient partners with experience with alopecia areata, atopic dermatitis and migraines needed.

Health Areas
Headache and Migraine, Eczema, Hair Problems

Opportunity Purpose
We are developing a survey to understand the impact of illness on people’s ability to work. We are focusing on three health conditions: alopecia areata, atopic dermatitis, and migraines. The perspectives of patient partners will be vital to ensuring that the survey captures what matters most to patients who are experiencing different levels of severity of illness.

All interactions can be completed through the phone or internet (video conference). Patient partners will participate in meetings with the research team and be encouraged to provide their thoughts on how the survey should be designed, disseminated to patients, and their interpretation of the results. We expect approximately 6 meetings over the course of one-year.

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!
