Opportunity Purpose
St. Paul’s Hospital’s Department of Anesthesia is recruiting volunteers to be Patient Partners on our Patient Advisory Council (PAC)!

Patient partners are patients, family members and caregivers with lived or living experience that work with the research team during the research process. Rather than being subjects of research projects, take the next step forward and be a partner in research!

Our research team holds virtual monthly research rounds where we discuss current, new and upcoming research projects with the team. It is a space to get feedback and input from members of the team! Patient partners will be invited to these meetings, based on if their health care experience aligns with the studies being, and will take part in the research team’s discussion. Drawing from their experiences, patient partners can help shape research project methods or questions.

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
