We invite you to get involved by joining our network of patient partners.
We involve patients and families as "patient partners" in various ways within our provincial renal network. This includes design, planning, implementation and evaluation of kidney care services.
Together, we work with the vision for people with kidney disease in BC to have the highest quality, person-centred care that enables them to live their lives to the fullest.
A patient partner is someone who…
- Have lived experience with (or are at risk of) kidney disease
- Are interested in making a difference in kidney care
- Are open to sharing their experience and working with health care professionals and other partners
All our patient partners are interviewed, trained and supported on an ongoing basis to ensure their contributions are meaningful and have impact.
