Health Care Partner Perspective: 
Bringing Patient Voices into Health Technology

How can technology be used to improve health care?

This is exactly what Selva Bayat (right), from the Health Technology Assessment team, investigates every day in her work. We connected with her in our latest blog post to hear how she collaborates with patient partners to choose which health care technologies will be used around the province!

"What Matters to You?"

Share Your "What Matters to You?" Story!

This year, our goal is to collect over 100 stories from patients, families, caregivers and health care providers about how "What matters to you?" conversations have changed their health care experience. 

Recently, "What Matters to You?" Ambassador Bev Dunsmore organized an event with former PVN Engagement Leader Anthony Gagné (left) to introduce the question and PVN. Over 60 people attended in Dawson Creek to reflect on "What Matters to You?" and how it relates to their community. 

Thanks to Bev and Anthony for bringing everyone together to share their stories and discuss this important initiative (and for supplying the cake!).

Share your story!

PVN Patient Partners Pam Jessen and Jolaine Cowherd are working so well as a team supporting BC Emergency Medicine Network (BCEMN) that their nicknames are the Engine and the Caboose, respectively! They are moving full steam ahead on a project to improve over 65 patient education materials; they have even created an A-B-C review checklist to make sure patient feedback is collected systematically.
