In BC, over one third of women are between the ages of 45 and 70, yet there isn’t an extensive care program that exists for women within this age range. BC Women’s strives to provide comprehensive care for women across their lifespan and is looking to expand care options for mature women.
To this end, BC Women’s has partnered with Emily Carr University of Art + Design’s Health Design Lab to design and build a mature women’s health program. Using Emily Carr’s human-centred design approach will help us bring the voices of women and health care providers to co-create a service model that will meet the needs of mature women.
To help us design a program that truly meets the needs of women, we are asking for feedback from BC women aged 45 to 70 by April 30. The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete. You may skip over any question you do not feel comfortable answering. Follow this link to complete this survey.
All information received through the survey will be anonymous. To ensure that protection of your information meets the highest standard, the survey has been approved by the UBC Behavioural Research Ethics Board.
Information we receive through the survey will inform a series of workshops with mature women on services that will meet their unique health needs in the following month. We will share more details about this new health program later in the spring.
