Do you have a child with a chronic disease? Your input is needed on a review considering patient navigator programmes for children with chronic diseases

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on patient navigator programmes for children and adolescents with chronic diseases? Patient navigators are trained medical or non-medical staff who help to guide and navigate patients and their families through complex medical systems by helping to coordinate patient care, give education, and work as an advocate for patients and their families.

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review “Patient navigator programmes for children and adolescents with chronic diseases”.

Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition or treatment (childhood chronic diseases and/or participating in patient navigator programmes), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for parents/carers of children with chronic diseases, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making.

While you are welcome to provide feedback on any aspect of the review, you can focus your attention on the summary sections. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

Thank you in advance for considering!
