PVN Annual Report 2017/18
We’re excited to share PVN’s work from the past year!
It’s been a busy year for the Patient Voices Network, and the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council is excited to share and celebrate PVN’s work through the 2017/2018 PVN Annual Report!
We are proud to say that we supported 426 patient partners in 235 engagement opportunities, grew the PVN network to 980 patient partners and strengthened our relationships with health care organizations across the province. We sponsored patient partners to attend learning opportunities and created numerous resources to build capacity and advance person- and family-centred care across BC.
This year, we advanced PVN’s strategic goals by providing workshops on becoming change agents and storytellers, how we increased youth representation by partnering with the University of Victoria at Selkirk College, and how we strengthened our relationships with partnering organizations by supporting a project to visually map the perspectives and care experiences of Indigenous people with substance use concerns.
