Looking for patient voices
The Patient Voices Network, in cooperation with Island Health, is looking for patient partners to join quality councils and contribute to improving care on Vancouver Island.
The Network’s, Engagement Leader, Leah Smith says patient voices provide new perspectives for health-care partners leading to more informed decisions….
Smith says there are “one-time” initiatives for patient participation but there’s also a call for former patients to participate in Quality Councils right across B.C.
Those Councils meet regularly to approve new standards of care, review adverse patient events, identify improvements and to celebrate successes.
