Patient Engagement

Inviting the voice of patients and their families

The experience of patients and their families helps shape how care is provided at Island Health. It is only from sharing your perspective that we can understand your questions, your fears, and your needs. Working together, we can achieve excellent health and care for everyone, everywhere, every time.

Engaging patients is a priority in Island Health, because it can lead to better decision-making all the way from the bedside up to budget priority-setting.

Island Health staff, physicians and leaders work collaboratively with patients and their families to inform change and create an environment of patient-centered care.

Guiding Patient Engagement

The guiding force of patient engagement at Island Health is the Patient Advisory Council, with guidance from the Ministry of Health’s priorities for the BC Health System.
