Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) improves the health of British Columbians by seeking province-wide solutions to specialized health care needs in collaboration with BC health authorities and other partners.
Every kidney patient's health journey includes major transition points during their disease progression, and each change requires navigating a complex health care system and interactions with various care teams. This can lead to additional stress, extended timeframes and even an inability to successfully transition to a new modality of care.
To better support patients, BC Renal, in collaboration with health authority partners and patients, developed a comprehensive series of Care Team Transition Guides and Patient Transition Guides. The process included extensive consultations, pilot testing and evaluation. These complementary tools provide step-by-step information on what happens during transitions and support the active role patients have in their health care planning and decisions.
