PANORAMA was a standing panel of 31 Ontario residents exchanging views, experiences and advice that helped The Change Foundation in its work to improve the patient/caregiver experience.
The PANORAMA panel was reflective of a growing proportion of Ontario’s population who are living with chronic health conditions or providing care for someone who is.
Between 2012 and 2014, PANORAMA modeled a uniquely deep and abiding healthcare partnership between The Change Foundation and a committed group of Ontario patients and caregivers willing to use their own experiences — good and bad — to improve everyone else’s.
As a result, the Panel had a tremendous impact on the work of the Foundation, and more importantly, helped to inspire, educate, and galvanize an impressive group of patient and caregiver citizens.
Report: Rules of Engagement: Lessons from PANORAMA
PANORAMA also left its mark on The Change Foundation in other ways. Namely, the essential points to consider when starting or running a patient engagement initiative.
Rules of Engagement: Lessons from PANORAMA serves as an excellent resource for health providers and professionals, outlining key moments in the engagement process that require extra thought and preparation. These recommendations can help ensure that patient engagement initiatives deliver results for organizations, and also make participants feel valued and respected in the process.

The Change Foundation gratefully acknowledges the dedicated and substantial work of the PANORAMA Panel.
