Public Advisory Network Facilitator

Vancouver

POSITION SUMMARY

The BC Public Advisory Network (BC-PAN) brings the public voice and perspective to multiple health regulators in the province. Health regulators have a shared mandate to serve and protect the public by ensuring regulated health-care professionals are qualified and that they provide safe and ethical care. The goal of the BC-PAN is to encourage more comprehensive and meaningful public engagement on important issues related to health-care regulation in BC. Through facilitated discussion, the public members are asked to provide their feedback on a variety of topics including, guiding the development of practice standards and policies, strategic priorities and initiatives, and communication directed at the public.

The College Partners of the BC-PAN include the: BC College of Nursing Professionals, College of Chiropractors of BC, College of Dental Surgeons of BC, College of Massage Therapists of BC, College of Occupational Therapists of BC, College of Opticians of BC, College of Pharmacists of BC, College of Physical Therapists of BC, College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, College of Psychologists of BC and the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of BC.

The BC-PAN recently completed its pilot phase, which included two initial meetings with eleven public members. The public members have varying levels of experience interacting with health-care professionals and were selected to represent the diversity of the BC population. As the group moves into the operational phase, fifteen public members are expected to attend three in-person meetings between June 2020 – February 2021. The meetings will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Representatives from the College Partners and a minute taker also attend the meetings, for an expected total of 26 attendees at each meeting.

The College Partners are seeking a consultant with experience in promoting productive engagement of a diverse group of members of the BC public to assist in the preparation and facilitation of the BC-PAN meetings, and to establish and meet stated objectives. The College Partners are inviting proposals from any independent consultant located within the Lower Mainland. The ideal consultant will have experience in both health care and/or health regulation, as well as group facilitation with diverse membership. The consultant is also expected to practice and promote cultural safety and humility. Proposals from interested consultants must be submitted electronically as attached word or pdf documents.

Proposals must include:

  1. Your philosophy and approach to facilitation.
  2. A summary of your recent and relevant projects.
  3. A firm estimate of the fees to be charged, including hourly and daily rates for meeting preparation and facilitation, and an estimate of expenses that would be incurred.
  4. Names, phone numbers, and email addresses of individuals at three organizations, for whom you have developed and facilitated sessions consisting of challenging topics with participants from a varied background, education and skillset.

Please send proposals to the attention of Kelly Newton, Policy and Engagement Lead, College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC at: bcpan@cpsbc.ca. Proposals must be submitted by April 30, 2020 at 12 noon.
