We're Engaging Younger Patient Partners! Here's How
A key priority for PVN is to diversify our network to better reflect the population in BC. We’ve been working to recruit patient partners with specific health experiences, youth and men, as well as populations of varying social and cultural backgrounds.
In this post, our engagement leader Carol Stathers tells us more about PVN’s initiatives to engage youth, such as using the same methods that youth typically use to communicate with their peers, reaching out to universities and colleges and, in some special cases, sending direct invitations when looking for patient partners with specific experiences.
Read the post and let us know if you have any other ideas to bring younger patient partners to our network!
