BC Children’s Hospital Diabetes Clinic families wanted

bcch logoPatients and families who use the BC Children’s Hospital Diabetes Clinic, we need your help!

We want your voice, your input, your feedback and your ideas to help us plan, evaluate and improve Diabetes services and programs.

There are two ways for you to participate:

1. Become a Diabetes Clinic Partner in Pajamas.

As a PiP member you provide feedback through: email, filling out surveys, reviewing documents and educational materials, text polling, and Facebook feedback. You can:

  • Contribute at your leisure – day or night.
  • Only choose projects you want to participate in.
  • Your identity will be anonymous unless you give permission to use your information. All feedback goes to the Partners in Care Patient & Family Advisory Program (made up of patients & families and lead by a parent on staff) first and will then be shared with the Diabetes Clinic working group and Clinic administration.
  • Withdraw from the group at any time.
  • Be confident that your child’s care will not be affected by your participation in or withdrawal from our group.

Click here for more information and to apply. Email completed application forms to sgreig@cw.bc.ca with “Diabetes PJ’s” in the subject line.

2. Become a Diabetes Clinic working group member

We are looking for two family members and one patient member (or former patient – up to the age of 23) to participate in the Diabetes Clinic monthly working group meetings. Your role will be to express your own opinions and give feedback but also to bring the broader voice to the table through the Partners in Pajamas program.

As a member of the BC Children’s Partners in Care Hospital Patient & Family Advisory program, you will attend 1.5 hour meetings once every two months. There, you will gain an understanding of what things are happening in the rest of the hospital, how to connect with other patients and family members in similar roles and how to use the Partners in PJ’s program. The Advisory program will provide you with an orientation, training and support on how to work with hospital staff as well as in gaining skills for presentation or speaking.

If you are interested in applying for one of the positions, email your application, CV or resume, and cover letter to sgreig@cw.bc.ca with “Diabetes Advisory Program” in the subject line. Click here to download a copy of the Family Advisory application form.
