Over the past decade, we've asked for input from all kidney patients across BC through a patient experience survey called the Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC). Each time we've done the survey, goal-setting was identified as a process that should be developed. This was the case across all types of kidney care and all renal programs.
To better understand goal-setting from different points of view and to identify common areas for improvement, BC Renal and the renal programs organized a series of focus groups and a provincial workshop on the topic. These were attended by kidney health professionals and patients and family members living with kidney disease across BC.
