BC Renal and the GN Committee are continuously looking for ways to better connect with kidney patients and their family members and caregivers. We are currently working on developing new engagement channels and opportunities for patients and their families – visit this section periodically to stay updated on this effort.
Current opportunity: patient partner
Patient partners of BC Renal contribute in various ways within our provincial renal network. This includes designing, planning, implementing and evaluating our kidney care services with a committee or working group for a set term. They may also participate in one-time activities such as surveys, focus groups and interviews.
If you are interested in joining BC Renal as a patient partner, please visit the BC Renal patient engagement page or contact our Patient Engagement team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research studies and clinical trials
There may also be opportunities to take part in research studies or clinical trials evaluating new treatments for GN. Ask your care team if you want to learn more about this. Information about current BC Renal clinical trials can be found here.
If you would like to connect with others who share similar experiences of living with GN, individually or as a group, please contact the Kidney Wellness Hub, a free online platform from the Kidney Foundation of Canada - BC and Yukon Branch.
