We love hearing about the impact of our patient partners and learning about what motivates them to join health care partners in improving quality of care.
Northern Health has been profiling its patient partners in a blog post series titled “Patient partners changing health care for the better.” We’re excited to share the stories with you so that you can join us in cheering on our northern network members. Here are the first few:
With a firm belief behind the need for transparency and communication, Roxanne Chmelyk (top) has been involved with many programs and activities focused on improving the quality of life for seniors. Read Roxanne’s story.
Rita Wiebe (middle) has served as a patient partner in various capacities for over a decade, including ensuring that communications to patients are person-centred. Read Rita’s story.
And after attending an orientation session and “never looking back,” John Grogan (bottom) has joined numerous projects locally and across the province, many of which involve telehealth, virtual care and improving care in rural communities. Read John’s story.
We’re so proud of Roxanne, Rita and John! Be on the lookout for more patient partner stories in our next newsletter.
