Regional Palliative Approach
- Goals of Care – The Regional Palliative Approach team wants to learn more about ways to improve transitions between community and acute care. Are you a patient or a family member of a patient who has experienced transitions in and out of hospital? If so, your input and perspective would be greatly appreciated.
- Review of Regional Home Support Pamphlet & Client Handbook – Do you have experience with Home Support? The Home Support pamphlet is designed for anyone who needs to know what Home Support is. The current pamphlet has not been updated for several years. The team is also developing a regional Home Support client handbook so that new clients have all the information they need about the service they receive.
- Ethnicity Data Collection Project – This project team would like to receive your input on the ethnicity data collected for patients and partners.
Maternal Child Program
- Vaginal Birth Collaborative – Have you given birth in the last 5 years? This working group needs to hear from you! Caesarean section (C/S) rates have climbed over the years in Vancouver Coastal Health and this project team thinks the most effective way to address this is by focusing on increasing vaginal birth rates. This working group is seeking 1-2 patient partners who have given birth within the last 5 years.
Patient Voices Network (PVN) is a provincial network of patient advisors that recruits for opportunities with provincial health bodies as well as Providence Health Care. We are pleased to share their opportunities with you.
