Become a Patient Experience Partner

Patient experience partners are patients or family members who have extensive or recent experience with Vitalité Health Network.

They work on a voluntary basis with the Network’s managers and staff. They share their expertise and knowledge as a patient or family member to help us improve the care experience for all patients and their families.

Patient experience partners may be asked to contribute a few hours a month on a voluntary basis, depending on the needs of the team, committee, or project they are involved in.

How can patient experience partner contribute?

As a partner, you can contribute to the Network in many ways, such as by:

  • Sharing your story: talking about your experience or the experience of your family member will provide us with valuable information and help us improve the quality of our care.
  • Participating in teams: you bring a unique and important perspective that will support our efforts to improve patient care.
  • Working on short-term projects: you may be asked to help us improve the patient experience in our programs or clinics or to provide advice on construction or renovation projects.
  • Reviewing education or information materials: you may be asked to review information documents we give our patients and families in order to help us ensure these materials are meaningful and easy to understand.
  • Serving on our Patient and Family Advisory Committee: this committee includes patient experience partners as well as staff members. The committee identifies and examines quality and patient safety improvement projects across all the Network’s programs and services.
